It's fine now - they will be excluded henceforth, although you will
still be able to restore those initial files in the first backup set
that you didn't exclude.  If you want to remove all trace of that
Cache directory you will have to delete them "manually" by removing
the related files in the rdiff-backup-data directory.  For instance,
"rm -rf /backup-dir/rdiff-backup-data/Cache*"
