With nothing specified except [x]Only include
and then specifying [x]Read file:_file-list.txt_,
when run, the complete source directory is
backed up instead of just the files listed
in _file-list.txt_.

I'm using ubuntu14.04 and gnome(I think).
I'm using the default profile with task:

test.include-filelist

The default.profile contains:

[Task] - 1
Name=test.include-filelist
.
.
.
Args=--update
Args=--delete-after
Args=--include-from=/home/evansl/prog_dev/find/filelist-relative.test.txt
Args=--include=*/
Args=--exclude=*
Args=--prune-empty-dirs
Args=--filter=protect .luckybackup-snaphots/
Args=/home/evansl/prog_dev/find/test.dir
Args=/home/evansl/prog_dev/backup/luckybackup/include-filelist/


How can I just backup the files in
/home/evansl/prog_dev/find/filelist-relative.test.txt

which contains:

whole2/x.txt
whole2/y.txt
whole1/x.txt
whole1/y.txt
x.txt
partial/partial1/whole/x.txt
partial/partial1/whole/y.txt
y.txt

TIA.
-regards,
Larry
