The jpilot-backup plugin only excludes databases by name.  But the
message "appending [J9 MIDP Bundle.prc]" is from J-Pilot, not
jpilot-backup.  If you sync by pressing the Backup button in J-Pilot,
then J-Pilot will backup all databases on the palm; the exclusion list
in jpilot-backup does not apply to J-Pilot's builtin backup.
