I didn't use 'exclude' at all ! I use 'include'. Well, let me explain with
a quick example.
Suppose we have a directory like the following :
   /dir/x.cfg
   /dir/a/y.cfg
   /dir/b/z

I want to copy every *.cfg on my host, so I use the following rule :
   copy:
        myhost::
                /dir
                        server=server.my.domain
                        dest=/tmp
                        recurse=inf
                        include=*.cfg

And here is the tree I obtain :
   /dir/x.cfg
   /dir/a/y.cfg
   /dir/b  <--- that dir was copied even if it doesn't have any *.cfg file !
   ^^^^^^

You see what I mean ?

It was the only stuff. I think that, this is not the transfert of files
which took so much time because when I launched cfagent again, there was
no other transfert but it took about 35 sec.
