g_file_monitor_directory on remote NFSv4

Hi all,

I have a quick question about g_file_monitor_directory. I want to monitor a remote NFSv4 folder for new files.

Using g_file_monitor_directory, it seems that I can detect new files only if the new file is created from the same machine that the code is running on (for example, the NFS server is "server1", my monitor code is on "client2", and another app on "client2" creates the new file).

If a third computer ("client3") creates a new file in this shared folder, g_file_monitor_directory does not detect it.

Is that expected, or a bug? Is there a way to catch these third-computer events?

This is on Fedora 11.
