Yes, it's a bug. If you choose a node as one of your entry guards,
and later you add it to ExcludeNodes, then it won't be thrown out.

It's on the todo list.

(We didn't pay it much mind, because we don't use ExcludeNodes, and
we're thinking of de-emphasizing it even more. Letting users play with
their routes on a wide scale is probably bad for their anonymity, and
definitely bad for load balancing across servers.)
