Hi all,  

I'm trying to get BackupFileExclude working, however I'm having issues.  I'm running 3.1.0-9ubuntu2.2, 

From advice here, I've added extra debugging:

http://www.mail-archive.com/backuppc-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg09155.html

unfortunately, you can see the BackupFilesExclude appear to be ignored in the rsync command.  Debug below!

I've checked the changelog from 3.1 to 3.2, and can't see anything related.  Any ideas?

Thanks!
