Basic audit test fails

I'm having trouble getting started with audit on FC4.  

First, it appears I don't have file watch enabled in my kernel.  Is file
watch enabled in  the FC5 kernel, or still only in RHEL? 

Second, I tried a basic test to audit files opened by a specific user (per
the auditctl  man page) but it doesn't seem to work:


[root localhost ~]# auditctl -a exit,always -S open -F loginuid=600
type=CONFIG_CHANGE msg=audit(1142975396.109:6629): auid=4294967295 added an
audit rule

[develop localhost ~]$ echo foo >> temp

[root localhost ~]# auditctl -s

[root localhost ~]# getenforce


Should this experiment have produced any output to audit.log when the user
wrote to a  file?  If not, why not?  If so, could the stuff being logged
during the rules listing  indicate a problem, or are those "unrecognized
netlink messages" normal?

Thanks for any help,
