Okay, so the obvious problem is the fact that # is a 
comment as far as dirvish is concerned: using an rsync
command like 

 rsync -avz --exclude=#cvs* from_dir/ to_dir/

works fine. I'm not having any joy with \#cvs* or 


which is a shame. I'm going to experiment with several

pints of beer and see if they help me.
