The Exclude VCS Ignored Paths setting under Core Settings commonly gets confused with the similar setting under the Tree View package, Hide VCS Ignored Paths. I believe the first is for excluding files from search and the latter is for the tree view itself.
For an idealized UI I'd vote for removing both settings and adding a new one that is a Select box where we can select to exclude (from search and tree view), exclude from search only, and show. It doesn't make sense (to me) to allow not showing in the tree view but showing up in search.
We could also just add some explanation text to both settings if the above is too radical a change.
Another option would be to rename the settings to Exclude VCS Ignored Paths From Search and Hide VCS Ignored Paths from Tree View, respectively. Of course, if either of the settings has a broader impact, then this won't work :P.
