Mondoarchive 2.2.9 tries to back up /proc/kcore

Description

If I run Mondoarchive as root using interactive GUI, the application freezes when it starts to back up big files (snapshot1.png). This is because md5sum is looping and using 100% of one CPU core (CPU is AMD Phenom X3) - see snapshot2.png. If I kill md5sum the application starts trying to back up /proc/kcore & carries on apparently indefinitely - max. approx 8 hrs so far (see snapshot3.png)

See also ticket #363 as this is same system. Interactive steps are exactly the same except no exclude_path - I unmounted filesystems to exclude to get round that problem.

Version is v2.2.9-r2460 (2.2.9-1.fc10 package from mondorescue repo). O/S is Fedora 11 (kernel 2.6.30.8-64.fc11.x86_64)

Regards,

Andrew

Problem is linked to the fact that multiple '/' char are used in front of files, so /proc/kcore is not detected as patr of /proc/ and thus backed up, where it should be excluded by default.

Normaly the fix made for #363 will also fix that issue of / repetition.
