Re: SVN ignore problem

This is annoying me now.

OK, I've just noticed that my svn:ignore property wasn't actually
working anywhere, it just appeared that it was because I had a similar
set of options set up in the tsvn ignore settings.

Is there no way to ignore all bin and obj files in a hierarchy
(whereever they occur) on all checked out working copies? It seems that
the recursive flag doesn't seem to work.
