Bacula - testing excludes

I've been having some trouble getting my Bacula jobs to exclude certain directories. To test which files will be included (or excluded) you can get a listing of the files that Bacula would include for a particular job from bconsole:

root@rm-bac-1:~# bconsole
Connecting to Director localhost:9101
1000 OK: rm-bac-1-dir Version: 5.0.1 (24 February 2010)
Enter a period to cancel a command.
*estimate job=ep-server-user-shares listing
[listing follows]

Handy! Beats waiting for the job to run to find out what will get backed up.

In my case, the culprit was incorrect case for the directory to exclude.
