Proper change notify support came only in with 3.0.25. It
uses inotify now which (I believe) was added to the kernel
with 2.6.13. If inotify is not available, Samba broadcasts
all events generated by other Samba clients properly, so in
that case you miss all events generated by unix processes.

We'd need sniffs and logfiles of that.
