[rdiff-backup-users] max-file-size prevents backup of large directory

I'm using rdiff-backup 1.2.6, as shipped in OpenSuse 11.2.

I'm attempting to backup up a file system that contains a very large number of 
small files, plus transient large files I wish to ignore. I'm using the 
--max-file-size option, but as well as filtering out large files, rdiff-backup 
is also completely ignoring directories with a large number of entries.

Is this expected behaviour, and is there a way to back up large directories 
without backing up large files during the same run?
