Yes, you are using this parameter correctly, but there is
a "bug" in the htsearch/Display.cc file around line 194

The line

            excludeFrom->FindFirst(url) < 0)

must be

            excludeFrom->FindFirst(url) >= 0)

Recompile & install htsearch and then it should work.
(BTW this problem is also in 3.0.8b2 clean version)
