I think * can include paths. The subfolder problem arises if you have a
specific file like IgnoreMe.* In that case you need to use *IgnoreMe.*
to make it work in subfolders.

Also I think you need forward slash for subversion paths.

German, if you still can't get this working you will have to give us
your ignore list and the names of some files which are not being ignored.
