I'm trying to combine --max-file-size and --exclude in the following
way to back up everything in /home/joh/tmp/sync1 that's below 128MB:

rdiff-backup --max-file-size 134217728 --print-statistics --include
'/home/joh/tmp/sync1' --exclude '/*' / /media/Backup/FarSite

However rdiff-backup seems to ignore --exclude completely when
--max-file-size is specified and tries to backup the whole root
filesystem instead! Note that this works perfectly if I omit the
--max-file-size argument.

Is this the intended behaviour?

Best regards,

Johannes H. Jensen
