No option to remain in one filesystem

Bug Description

I used "sshfs" to mount a remote filesystem in my home directory and it was backed up by Deja-Dup. I should, of course, have added the mount-point in my home directory to the exclude list, but I didn't realise until the backup had been running for hours and many GB had been downloaded on my ADSL connection from the remote SSHFS fileserver I was connected to. It would be useful if there was an option for Deja_Dup to remain in one filesystem during a backup to avoid this type of problem.

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS. I noticed my laptop was running slow and discovered that it was trying to back up files over a fuse.sshfs mount to another machine in my apartment. This should not happen.

I'm probably going to have to disable deja-dup because of this issue and find some other way to do backups -- the machine I was sshfs'd to is probably where I should be sending my backups!
