Works here with 3.0.23d - "hide files = /*.pst/". Remember it's case sensitive 
and will also affect performance. And if you set Windows Explorer to show 
hidden files you will see them.

Since dot files are hidden by default why not rename the pst's to 'dot 
something' - ".users.pst"? It appears that this is not a performance hit (at 
least the man page doesn't mention it).
