Unfortunately the network traces only contain SMB2 traffic.
I can understand that against Windows as a server, but even
that only contains READ commands, no notify at all. 

In the log files I indeed do not see any notification being
sent from the server, that's right also.

Maybe it's best if you sent us the small executable that
shows the problem. Please send exact instructions how to
reproduce. And, I don't have Visual Studio handily
available, so something executable on a standard W2k8 or
Win7 (or XP) would be very helpful.

With best regards,
