I've opened issue #236 for this:

Now, while your report is ok, this definitely isn't.
The whole point of showing unversioned items in the commit dialog is to
immediately see what needs to be added to version control so you don't
forget to commit new files.
However, what you're describing here is that you have tons of
unversioned files which should never be versioned at all. This
completely defeats the purpose of showing unversioned files. You have to
*ignore* those files you never want versioned. That's what the
svn:ignore property is for - right-click on those files and choose one
of the entries in the 'ignore' submenu, directly from the commit dialog.
Or uncheck the option "show unversioned files" so they don't show up at all.
But what you're doing really is the wrong thing to do. You mentioned
that this issue is 'severe' - it's not. What's severe (or maybe better:
what makes this severe) is that you're 'doing it wrong'. If you would
use the svn:ignore property (or the global ignore patterns in the
settings dialog) this wouldn't be severe at all.
