--exclude '*.lock' results in an error

duplicity-talk mailing list
hi Aaron,

had a report that excluding '*.lock' does not work with 0.7.19 and testing with latest 0.8.x reveals it still fails (s.b.). can you explain why? unfortunately selection.py does not throw a stack even with max. verbosity.

Fatal Error: The file specification
cannot match any files in the base directory
Useful file specifications begin with the base directory or some
pattern (such as '**') which matches the base directory.
