[Duplicity-talk] help with --include and --exclude

I've been trying out duplicity, but I don't seem to completely
understand the --include and --exclude directives.

What I want to do is backup up only a subset of files and directories.

If I use the command:
root# duplicity  --include '/home/*/bin' --include '/home/backup'
--include '/home/bk/projects'  --include
'/home/*/.mozilla/firefox/*/bookmarks.html' --include '/usr/local/etc'
--exclude '**' / file:///tmp/testbackup

and then look at what got backed up using:
root# duplicity --list-current-files file:///tmp/testbackup

then I see that /usr/local/etc and everything beneath that got backed
up, but none of the other directories/files that I specified to
include got backed up.

Why?  Am I missing something obvious?

Environment info:
duplicity 0.4.2
freebsd 6.1 release

Thanks for any help,
