But obviously this is not allways true....
For example: (global ignore for "bin" is set)
When I have versioned directory "\Test" and I add new directory "bin"
with a few files into that versioned directory, after "Add..." on
directory "\Test", no single file (and of course "bin" itself) is shown
in Add dialog.
But when I create directory "Test2" in "Test" (so structure is like
"Test\Test2" and Test2 is not yet versioned) and move entirely "bin"
directory into this new dir, Add command on "\Test" will show dialog
where are all files in "\Test\Test2\bin" but not "\Test\Test2\bin"
directory itself....
I think it's little inconsistent behaviour...
Or did I miss something ?
