The Keywording panel's Will Export option shows the wrong hierarchical keywords when some of the ancestor keywords have Include On Export unchecked but Export Containing Keywords checked.  To reproduce:

1. In the Keywording panel, assign the hierarchical keyword A > B > C to a photo.

2. Change the panel to Will Export and observe that it correctly displays A, B, C.

3. In the Keyword List, double-click B and uncheck Include On Export but check Export Containing Keywords.

4. In the Keywording panel, observe that Will Export incorrectly shows just C.

5. Export the photo, including all metadata.

6. Use ExifTool to observe that XMP:Subject correctly includes A, C but not B.

Tested on LR CC 2015.12 / MacOS 10.12.6.
