I am no expert, but you experience coincides with my expectation that;
backing up part of a directory tree to an rdiff-backup repository is
implicitly saying all the excluded files have been removed so
rdiff-backup records them as being deleted in the repository.

Ah.  I wonder if, indeed, that's right; I hadn't thought of it that way.

Mike, thanks for that insight, I'll have to rethink what we're doing.
