Hmm, groping in the dark a bit but ..

Here is the relevant code from wrapper.c :-

   if (S_ISDIR(statbuf.st_mode) && (ptr->recurse != 0))
      {
      if (!IgnoreFile(startpath,ReadLastNode(startpath),ptr->ignores))
         {
         Verbose("%s: Skipping ignored root-search directory 
%s\n",VPREFIX,startpath);
         
CheckExistingFile(startpath,ptr->plus,ptr->minus,ptr->action,ptr->uid,ptr->gid,&statbuf,ptr,ptr->acl_aliases);
         }

This is in CheckFileWrapper which is called by ExpandWildCardsAndDo
which does :-

 /* This function recursively expands a path containing wildcards */
 /* and executes the function pointed to by function for each     */
 /* matching file or directory                                    */

Okay, its too early for me to check any further (brain hurts). Hope
this helps somewhat.

Sincerely,

Adrian Phillips
