I would agree, except that apparently TSVN and SVN behave differently in this regard. That is, if my ignore list includes:

*.foo \n

with a space before the line end, I'm seeing TSVN put a minus (-) sign in the icon in explorer for bar.foo -- indicating it is being ignored. OTOH, SVN does _not_ ignore this file, so it appears in the commit dialog.

So I guess what I'm really asking is, shouldn't TSVN behave like SVN and *include* blanks before the line-end as part of the filename?
