Thanks. I did not know that. Then you are right of course.
But when I think about the behavior you described and I find it a bit
strange...

There are several ways to include/exclude files and directories in a
bacula fileset.

Is there some document somewhere which describes the order in which
the different types are being processed and if it does work with first-match
or last-match etc?
