[Samba] Problem to detect changes in directory

Ok i guess i found out. Samba would do only Directory Changes
notification but not File Changes notification.Meaning it returns only
the fact that "something" has changed in the folder and not "this file"
has changed. i guess my transcoder software is expecting the latter ...
Can anyone confirm me this limitation in samba ?
