[Box Backup] Regex causes bbackupd to stop working

I just discovered that bbackupd stops doing any backupping when I add a
particular line in my previously working config:

    ExcludeFilesRegex = *.core$

If I add this, no more backupping is done upon my bbackupctl sync, and
what's of course worse, no error is spewn out. Hence, it took me a while
to find the culprit in my config.

By the way, what would be the correct line to exclude all core files, in
all subdirectories, if not what I used above?
