You probably want to keep "/home/.encryptfs" in the list of folders to
be pruned. It contains the actual encrypted data - just a bunch of
randomly named files like "KFMVgJ0UBSIeaXX0YukGa6Ix". Having that
pollute your locatedb probably isn't very useful. What you want is to
have the data in the encrypted filesystem indexed, which is the
"encryptfs" bit you edited out.
