Thanks, Loki.
My problem was that since I've about 30 directories besides the
default I want excluded,
I had broken the PRUNEPATHS variable into several parts for
readability then concatenated them, like so:
defaultPRUNEPATHS="..."
hdaPRUNEPATHS="..."
hdcPRUNEPATHS="..."
PRUNEPATHS="$defaultPRUNEPATHS$hdaPRUNEPATHS$hdcPRUNEPATHS"
This works fine in Debian and Redhat but not in Slackware.
Once I made PRUNEPATHS one long string everything's fine.
Thanks again for all your trouble,
Mike
