So you mean when I have DirA\DirB\FileA.txt Where DirA is under
version control, and has svn:ignore set for DirB. While DirB is not
under version control. Even with this feature TSVNCache.exe would
still end up with a file handle on FileA.txt that with the right
timing prevents its deletion? This is the problem I ran into, and was
a little confused as to why Subversion or TSVN would ever need to open
a handle on a file in an unversioned directory. Does it only list the
existence of the file as unversioned, which it'd get from the
directory listing?
