Thanks for your answer. Do you mean like this?

    + /media
    + /media/*

That didn't change anything. /media ist still being excluded.

Just to rule that out: xdev has nothing to do with my problem. It is set

My system is Kubuntu 18.04.



P.S.: Here is my full current dirvish.conf. I just anonymized it.

client: user at host
rsh: ssh -vi '/home/user/.ssh/key'
tree: /
image-default: filename-%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M
xdev: 0
    + /media
    + /media/*
    - some_dir_in_home/*
