You can try that :
cd /tmp
mkdir -p site/{test1,test2}
tar cfv test.tar site --exclude 'site/test2'

site/test2 is included but it shouldnot.

I have upgraded to tar 1.13.25 and the bug disappears.

Maybe it is time to upgrade to this new version...
At least, there should be a patch to correct this bug in the 1.13 version.
