Description

Rsnapshot will automatically add --exclude=xxxx to the rsync options for backups of the filesystem on which the snapshot-root is located. This will be added to the rsync command-line AFTER the rsync_short_args and rsync_long_args, but BEFORE any backup-specific options. This means that the --exclude=xxxx will override whatever backup-specific excludes are defined. This can be a problem if the name of your snapshot-root is something which is common in many file names. This version resolves this problems.
