There is no reason that fix should have made things worse. If
anything it should have been better. Does it not remember the setting
of the checkbox value? Are you doing your commit from the Synchronize
view or Team menu? In the Synchronize view we intentionally ignore
any previous setting.

There are a lot of ways to ignore stuff. You should be able to
right-click on the file and do Team > Add to svn:ignore. This will
create/update a property named svn:ignore on the lib folder. If you
enter a value of *.jar, then all JAR files in that folder will be
ignored. You have to commit the property change. It is a folder
setting only, no other way to do it.

Eclipse also has preferences, Team > Ignored Resources. You can enter
patterns in there to have files ignored. The svn:ignore property is
generally a better way to do it since it will be honored by all SVN
clients.
