Hi,

The documentation states:
  ExcludeFilesRegex = *.(mp3|MP3)\$

Shouldn't this be
ExcludeFilesRegex = *\.(mp3|MP3)\$

The dot means any character, not match the '.'  character. Why are you referring to
man 7 re_format when in fact you probably bind to some library?

You should point at the documentation for that library or failing that some reference to POSIX directly (it's available online). I didn't check the source to see what you are doing exactly, but making the backup syntax operating system dependent seems like an unwise path to take.

Jan
