I left this issue of you open, because it isn't about something that's
not TSVN fault, already fixed or just plain RTFM.
(your second issue is closed because you should have read the FAQ, which
explains why those overlays are missing.)

Sorry, but the ignore list doesn't ignore directories. It does ignore
all files and directories which match the patterns, but _not_ including
all files in a folder which matches those patterns.

To me, this doesn't make any sense. And I even think this would be
dangerous. If you don't want the file Project.pdb to show up in the add
dialog, simply add *.pdb to your ignore pattern list! That way you can
really be sure that only files which really _match_ those patterns don't
show up.
