I should have said I was trying to backup the /home directory, although
the exclude list hinted so. I was trying to cut the craps, not bring along
a life long story, but apparently I trimmed too much. :-)
Ok, fair enough. two pass is a solution. But I have to add every single
user in my /home directory, and if there is change in account, i.e. more or
less people, I'll be in trouble.
Anyway, if that's the only solution. fine.
