Has anyone else had problems excluding files with tar-1.13?  I tried using 
an exclude file, and it didn't seem to work they way I interpreted the 
documentation.  Then I tried the same file on a system with a newer version 
of tar, and it worked as expected.  I then replaced tar on the first 
machine with tar-1.13.25 (from the GNU alpha site), and it also worked as 
expected.  Does anyone have any background information?  I couldn't find an 
explicit reference to my problem in the tar change log.
