Thats what I would have expected too. I wonder why I have to add a '*' to a
path to in-/exclude sub paths. Since I don't understand for what it is for,
I play heretic and doubt its necessity:
- What is the original reason for this?
- Isn't this too complicated?
- Is it necessary?
- Do we need the '*' to achieve anything that we can't achieve without it?

"Exclude C:\" -> Exclude the C: drive and all its folders
"Include C:\Delphi" -> Include C:\Delphi and all its versioned subfolders.

What does the '*' give me on top of that?
