I found another flaw in that context.
I use precommand to mount a directory tree via sshfs.
As suggested by comment #2: I moved section '# precommand ausführen' directly in front of section '# initialise include, exclude and checkBlocks rules'.
However, sourceDir is checked prior mounting with precommand which raises errors about an unexisting sourceDir.

I moved the section '# precommand ausführen' directly after the section which IMHO creates prLog.
The code is now:

$main::__prLog = $prLog;   # used in rules

(@main::cleanup) = ($prLog, 1);

my (%suppressWarning);
    my $s;
    foreach $s (@$suppressWarning)
        $suppressWarning{$s} = 1;

# precommand ausführen

Are there any sideeffects to expect?

I see no reason why your workaround should not work. I just included the change in my (not yet ready) candidate for the version.

Maybe this description shows how to mount via fstab:
(But I didn't check in detail, so maybe I'm wrong.)

It's a pitty if this would only works with an auxiliary script, since this means I have to do a major rework of my cronjobs that call storeBackup. Also storeBackupMount needs root access to modify /etc/fstab.

My workaround now is to edit storeBackup.pl and place section

# precommand ausführen

before section

# initialise include, exclude and checkBlocks rules

With this small modification precommands are executed earlier and all mount are present when storeBackup checks for include/exclude files. And: not need for auxiliary scripts.

Does this change have any side-effects?

at least for the second part (having a mountcommand) there is already a solution. You might want to take a look at storeBackupMount.pl.

Fri 04 Dec 2015 08:53:55 PM UTC, original submission:  

I use precommand to mount a sshfs. Works fine until I tried to exclude a folder with exceptDirs. The error is:
ERROR     2015.12.04 21:46:26 21500 no directory resulting from exceptDir pattern <vdr>
Where "vdr" is the folder I want to exclude.

expectDirs throws an error that a folder can not be found prior the filesystem is mounted. Thus the folder is never there. IMHO this should be interchanged to execute precommand prior expectdir. If this would have some sideeffect, maybe we could introduce a "mountcommand" that is executed prior all folder/files checks.
