Single directory exclude not working if backing up root

Bug #345949 reported by tomcloud on 2009-03-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
sbackup (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: sbackup

When backing up "/" ("Include" tab has single entry "/") all exclude entries (from "Exclude" tab) that consist of a single directory do not get excluded. Note: had to edit /etc/sbackup.conf manually to get proper "/" entry.

Example: "Exclude" tab has entries "/home/tscloud/other/", "/var/tmp/", "/tmp/", "/sys/". "/home/tscloud/other/", "/var/tmp/" are excluded but "/tmp/", "/sys/" are backed up.

sbackup ver: 0.10.5ubuntu2
ubuntu ver: 8.10
