JSPool watching entire user directory? #253

I've been using the Owin demo app as a base for my own project, and although everything is working, the console for the app is full of 100s of messages like

JSPool] Watched file '[JSPool] Watched file '/\Users\Harry\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cookies-journal' changed'.

It seems to be watching my entire user directory.

Given that I'm using

            var contentFileSystem = new PhysicalFileSystem(@"..\..\Content");
            obj.UseBabel(new BabelFileOptions()
                StaticFileOptions = new StaticFileOptions()
                    FileSystem = contentFileSystem,
            obj.UseFileServer(new FileServerOptions() { FileSystem = contentFileSystem });

shouldn't it only be watching under my Content directory? Apologies if this is user error somewhere!

This may be fixed by f450bac. Could you please try it out and let me know if that fixes it? The build should be available on the development server shortly (see for instructions).

Please let me know if you still encounter this, it should have been fixed in ReactJS.NET 2.4.0

This is still an issue for me, using React.Net 3.1.0 like this, am I missing something? Thanks

Public Sub ConfigureAuth(app As IAppBuilder)
Dim contentFileSystem = New PhysicalFileSystem(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("Content"))
app.UseBabel(New BabelFileOptions() With
.StaticFileOptions = New StaticFileOptions() With
.FileSystem = contentFileSystem
app.UseFileServer(New FileServerOptions() With {.FileSystem = contentFileSystem})
