The built in backup application on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 13.04 works great. I have it set to encrypt my files and upload them via SSH to an offsite file server.
However, not wanting to waste space and bandwidth, I chose to ignore several folders in my home directory by adding them to the 'Folders to ignore' list in the Backup options.
The backup seems to ignore this list and upload the contents of those folders anyway, as evidenced by the detail output of the backup window when the backup is running.
I've tried to restart my computer several times. Remove and add again the folders to the ignore list. I've done hit both 'Resume Later' and 'Cancel' on the backup and starting it manually.
Bounty will be awarded to whoever can tell me the reason why my folders are not properly being ignored and provide a fix leading to the resolution.
Here is my Folders tab for the backup options.
Here is the output of the backup dialog.
