Gordon,
        I've not tried this myself but you must enter a regular
expression for the exclusion. The reason why it is not working is because
the / is a character used in regular expressions.

        You could try excluding \/~

        I suspect it might work, please let me know if it doesn't.

Regards,
Maren.
