But, from the in-place manual page of tor, I can find the following description:

|       ExcludeExitNodes node,node,...
|           A list of identity fingerprints, country codes, and address
|           patterns of nodes to never use when picking an exit node---that is,
|           a node that delivers traffic for you outside the Tor network. Note
|           that any node listed in ExcludeNodes is automatically considered to
|           be part of this list too. See the ExcludeNodes option for more
|           information on how to specify nodes. See also the caveats on the
|           "ExitNodes" option below.

As you can see, all of the fingerprints, country codes, and address
patterns can be acceptable for using as ExcludeExitNodes.  Why you say
that: "It should be the fingerprints."?

As a result, I still cann't figure out what's the reason for my
original issue posted in this thread.
