I'm having trouble with dolphin not updating an nfs share on my nas box.
The nas directory is there when you access via dolphin but when a file is added to the nas directory it doesn't appear in dolphin unless you close it completely and restart it.
Is this what is to be expected, or should dolphin update automatically? If I press f5 it refreshes, is there a way to get this to happen automatically?

When you do the same locally, Dolphin does automatically update the view? If so, then Dolphin is either polling (very bad) or using a file notification watch (good) to detect when the file is created. Based on the description, Dolphin either does not use a watch on NFS, or the watch does not work.

Yes, dolphin updates locally, it's just the nfs mounts that don't. Is there a mount option I may of failed to set?
