Regression introduced in 1031ead7 wrt `[run]omit` and reporting

Issue #648 closed

Now to be honest, my repository here is a_bit_ of a special snowflake so it's entirely possible this is somehow my fault -- though this has been working well for quite some time (the oldest build I can find succeeding is against coverage 4.0.3 (two years and one day ago)).

I have not yet tried reducing the problem to a MCVE but I can assist in that if it's helpful :)

The repository in question is

During some routine automated maintenance my builds began to fail -- now showing missing coverage for (which is in my [run]omit so it should never be traced at all).

A few things of note for this particular repository. It is leveraging coverage-enable-subprocess (thanks @Buck Evan!) to automatically trace subprocesses.

I bisected (using the github git mirror) using the following script and commands:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -euxo pipefail

cd ../setuptools-golang

# virtualenv .tox/py36 && .tox/py36/bin/pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
test -e "$VENV/python"

"$VENV/pip" uninstall -y coverage || true

"$VENV/pip" install ../coveragepy

export TOP="$PWD"
"$VENV/coverage" erase
"$VENV/coverage" run -m pytest tests
"$VENV/coverage" combine
"$VENV/coverage" report --show-missing --fail-under 100 || exit 1
git bisect start
git bisect good coverage-4.4.2
git bisect bad coverage-4.5.1 
git bisect run ./

The end of the log appears as follows:

    Don't confuse run-include with report-include (and also omit). Fixes #621 and #622.
