Exception 'Path: F:/.git, just after start of rdiff-backup

Heri Bender
Hi all

Just after executing this (on a Windows7 64x machine, NTFS)

    executing CMD_LINE: "C:\Program Files (x86)\rdiff-backup-1.2.8\rdiff-backup" --include-globbing-filelist rdiff_include_f_to_r.txt F:/ R:/backuptest

this errors are displayed on console:
Exception 'Path: F:/.git
Index: ('.git',)
Data: {'type': None}' raised of class '<type 'exceptions.AssertionError'>':

The F:/ root does not contain a ".git" folder (although there are several .git repositories across the partition, but not in the root).

F:/ (the source) is my data partition (internal hard disk), about 1 TB of data. R:/backuptest (the destination on a USB external drive) is still empty; I'm just playing around for evaluation of the rdiff-backup tool.

Backing up (parts of) my C:/ drive work as expected. Also if I select "F:/someFolder" as source everything works.

What can cause this problem? How to workaround?

Thanks
Heri
