This is by design: Subversion has several places where config options
can be stored:
registry (what TSVN uses)
user config file
global config file

Now, as the Subversion book clearly states:
Registry-based configuration options are parsed before their
file-based counterparts, so are overridden by values found in the
configuration files. In other words, configuration priority is granted
in the following order on a Windows system:

   1. Command-line options
   2. The per-user INI files
   3. The per-user Registry values
   4. The system-wide INI files
   5. The system-wide Registry values
(from http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch07.html#svn-ch-7-sect-1)

So by activating the global ignores in your config file, you're
_overwriting_(!) the settings you made in TSVN.
