All bug reports will make the patch even better. ;)

What paco version are you using? If you're using older version than 
svn-20060325 there's been some issues with the EXCLUDE dirs not being 
honored. If you're actually using recommended or newer version, then I 
probably have to reevaluate which dirs/files to exclude.

I'm not into sed language, so I prefer other solutions.

Do you have some examples of missing files from your paco logs? I'll do
