I forgot to mention,

If I add an exclude for 


it doesn't generate the odd .DS_Store files.

However, if I copy directories with other types of hidden files like .bash_history then it generates odd versions of those too. So I added an exclude for every hidden (dot prefix) file


and it seems to work ok. This might be ok as an emergency measure of course but not desirable since a lot of hidden files are needed and at root level indispensable.
