I've released a new version of the Windows native client which may help 
you. I think that the problem was that exclude/alwaysinclude directives 
were processed in a case sensitive way, which makes sense on Unix but not 
on Windows.

Please could you try the new client and let me know if it helps? You can 
download it at:


Cheers, Chris.
