I suggest you clean out your svn:ignore property on that folder and then
right click on each subfolder in turn and add to ignore list. Maybe you
have some trailing spaces, or it's a case sensitivity issue?

Of course if those folders are already versioned then you can't ignore
them anyway.

Some (all?) versions of Windows sometimes change the case of what is
displayed in explorer. Win98 used to have that option, but I can't see
it in Win2K right now.

You don't need to commit for the ignore property to take effect.
