Ok, I have managed to repeat the problem on some dummy data I've created.
It's entirely possible that I simply don't understand properly how the --includes and --excludes work, but this behaviour seems odd to me.

You were absolutely right, under some conditions when you use an
include like "--include **XXX", empty directories may be skipped, and
this bug may have first appeared in version 1.0.0 (which fixed another
selection bug).

I think this patch will fix the problem, but you may want to test it
on your directory structure:


Well, it's taken me an inordinate amount of time to get back on this one, but just a heads-up really to say this seems to have fixed the problem on my backup (tested by upgrading to version 1.0.4, not by applying the patch myself) -- thanks!
