So where doesn't ignore work as expected? Which TortoiseSVN operation?

I just added [Tt]humbs.db to my TortoiseSVN ignore, and the thumbs.db file

Is it possible that e.g. thumbs.db is already under version control on your
PC? Then it won't be ignored, no matter what you put in the ignore pattern.
If you don't want a file/folder to show up, remove it from version control
and add it to your ignore pattern.

The same applies for the _notes folder.

This action would make the normal right click menu busier, that's right, but
your most frequently used TortoiseSVN operations will be only one menu level
away and not two.
I have update, commit, log and compare in the top menu. Compare will only be
visible, if there really is something to compare.
