/.wine/dosdevices/ doesn’t exclude /media/Backup/native/xxx/.wine/dosdevices/ /media/Backup//.wine/dosdevices/ doesn’t work either

For better or worse, the patterns in the skippedPaths variable are matched using fnmatch(3) with the FNM_PATHNAME flag (and FNM_LEADING_DIR), which means that / characters must be matched explicitely.

This means in practise that there is currently no way to say "skip [.wine/dosdevices] anywhere"

Using FNM_PATHNAME was probably a bad idea, but I can’t really change it now. The only workaround I can think of would be to either add "dosdevices" to skippedNames, possibly only in certain subtrees. I do agree that this is not equivalent.

I’ll add a configuration variable to the next release in order to allow adjusting the flags used for matching the skippedPaths (the default value will be the current one). I am also going to document the current behaviour (this is more a documentation bug actually).

index: add skippedPathsFnmPathname variable to enable disabling the use of FNM_PATHNAME while matching in skippedPaths. Closes issue #67
