incrontab usage

Moving on to more constructive efforts ...

peter@joule:~$ incrontab -l
/home/peter/test IN_MODIFY touch ~/indicator 2>&1

Then according to my thinking, sending a fresh copy of test 
to Joule using FTP, should trigger "touch ~/indicator".  If 
there is no pre-existing indicator, then an empty file should 
be created.  Doesn't work.  A detail which bothers me is 
the absence of connected terminal for stdout and stderr.
Is that the problem?  Is it elsewhere?

Thanks,                ... Peter E.
