The part about properties only working on svc-controlled folders makes
sense. However, I'm not talking about ignore properties that are in the
actual repository meta data. I am talking about the TSVN configuration
setting on the first page of the setting dialog that lets you _globally_
ignore a pattern.

What I'm wishing is that the "global" setting applied even to files that
are being added that are not directly contained in an already controlled
folder. It seems slightly odd that if I break my workflow into 2 steps
(first add the new top level folder, then add the rest) I get different
results than if I try to add them all at once.

Perhaps this is a core svn issue, though and not a tortoise issue?
