Bug Description

Found in sbackup 0.11.4

The regular expressions for file exclusions defined in the default configuration can and should be improved:

* do not exclude specific types of files e.g. mp3, avi etc.
* fix regex for .gvfs, trash, cache etc. Currently these do not apply to 'top-level' directories because of their trailing slash (/)
* add a default regex for lock directories (e.g. $HOME/.mozilla/lock)
* add a default regex for $HOME/.cache directory
* improve regex which define directories in /home/ by using ^ (must start with /home!)
