Exclusion list treats home directory differently

Bug #1767148 reported by gbolcer on 2018-04-26
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
deja-dup (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Adding to Folders to ignore, you can navigate to /home/greg/.gvfs in the GUI, but it gets stored as ~/.gvfs in the exclusion list.

When the backup runs, it gives the "Backup Finished" but Could not back up the following files. Please make sure you are able to open them.


The same diretory is listed 3 times n the warning message.

As a workaround, I want to add the fully qualified pathname to the exclusion file to see if that fixes it, but basically I just want to properly ingore the folder.
