global ignore patterns are by definition 'global' and not related to
projects. So storing them in a project would be just wrong.

That feature is not from TSVN but from Subversion. It's a simple flag
passed to the API.

Here's your problem!
"bin obj *.suo"
would be correct. The ignore patterns are *not* regex strings. They just
have *some* regex funtionality (like e.g. [tT] to catch both lower and
uppercase letter 't').
