[K12OSN] OT- BackupPC excludes not working

Dear Sir,

                                   --------------------      SNIP    

Can someone suggest the proper syntax for getting excludes to work on my
BackupPC installation?  I want to exclude a certain folder from a user's
home directory.  Home is on a separate partition so it has it's own
entry in the BackupPC conf under share names.

I have this under rsync args:


and this under conf(backupfilesexclude) :
'/proc', '/var/spool/squid','slocate.db', '/home/ckeil/secret/*', 
why isn't this working.  I just noticed that I have the /* in one place
and not in the other, but I've tried it both ways in both places.  A
related question, how will I know this is working?  I'm assuming that
after the next incremental backup after I get this right then those
directories won't appear in the backups.  Is there a way to delete
backed up information from the backup server?

                                   --------------------      SNIP

am sending as attachement for your kind reference in case it is not
