Odd behaviour with Powershell Get-ChildItem with exclude

Discovered some strange behaviour with the File objects in Powershell. If you pipe the results of Get-ChildItem through foreach and ask for the default $_ you’ll get the file name. However, if you add an -exclude to the gci then the $_ becomes the full path!? Very odd.
