I've done some additional work on both the FileSystemMonitorTestCase
and FileCleaningTrackerTestCase which I hope will get rid of the
errors. Gump has been pretty much daily, so should have an indication
soon. I have added the gump failures to the JIRA issue (from the mail
archive) - can't tell the cause as theres no history AFAIK with gump.

Because of these changes I'm going to roll another RC
