Bug Description

Binary package hint: sbackup

System: On Ubuntu 10.04 (although the problem appears to exist at least as far back as Ubuntu 8.04).
Package Version: 0.10.5ubuntu2.1

Expected Behavior:
I was attempting to use regular expression "excludes" to prevent .git and .svn folders from being included in backups. I tried multiple formats of the regular expressions, such as:


and then executed "Backup Now!". The expectation is that the files.tgz would not include any files within these directories.

What Occured:
The files.tgz in the '-ful' backup directory contained files that should have been excluded.

Possible Patch:
It appears that when a full backup occurs, the exclude regex is not applied. The attached patch resolves the issue to my satisfaction.
