[Samba] Clients send tons of Notiftication requests

I have followed torch's help and I have changed the smb.conf.
Instead of notify change = no I have put 

kernel notify change = no

After restarting samba, now all the Windows programs connect nicely.
File.app, instead, still behaves oddly:
I connect to the server and see all my folders; I click on one of them, and I see three folders, but after a second, the folders vanish and then after a second, the three folders appear again, and then they go away, and then they reappear, and so on. Time ago, this was working properly.

I also connected to the NAS with FileExolorer and everything was OK instead

Still I can't understand what's going on....

I have been trying to help Luca on the QNAP forum since I have the same NAS.  It reports smbd version 4.7.12.  I have not had any issues, but I am in a Mac/Linux environment only.  
In Luca’s case, he is using NFS (not sure what version) on his Mac and I initially thought that maybe it was initiating change notifications somehow.  Possible?
