SVN Global Ignore Broken for Directories

I recently tried to commit a folder named Assets.o to my repository. When right clicking and adding, it only listed that folder for adding instead of its contents. So I checked the svn-ignore property and it was undefined for this repository and any of the subsequent folders I was working in. Additionally, I checked the global SVN ignore entry and found '*.o', which matched my particular folder. I removed the entry, leaving my global ignore pattern as:
*.lo *.la *.al .libs *.so *.so.[0-9]* *.a *.pyc *.pyo *.rej *~ #*# .#* .*.swp .DS_Store
When trying to right click and add this folder now, the dialog claims there is nothing to add, which is even less true than when it only wanted to add the folder itself and not the contents.
Additionally, it seems that even if I clear the entire string from the global ignore list, I'm not able to add folders with names that match any of the expressions within the list.
Any idea what I could be doing wrong here? My work around was to add the folder remotely to the repository, update, and then put the contents in the folder. However, this is less than ideal as I may actually want to create folders using these naming conventions. I'm also not sure that Tortoise will alert me to new files and changes to files in this "ignored" folder, which could be problematic.
