Windows 7 ..\Temp folder exclude from backup?

Level 4

I would have thought that any ...\Temp folder would be excluded from backup but I'm seeing that "C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Temp" is part of the backups. This is a bit ridiculous and I see now its added about 20% to my nightly incremental backups. 

Further I have a specific Excludes entry for WinXP - "\\*\*\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\Temp\*.*" - that based on the Windows 7 legacy folder junction points equates to the previously mentioned \Temp folder also.

On my WinXP systems the Exclude is being correctly applied and on my Win7 systems I can see the folder junctions in the backup but the areas in question are not being correctly Excluded?
