If you inherited the project, that means you now own it. So what stops
you from fixing the project so that you can store it wherever you like?
Depending on the size of that project, you really should fix this
because if you can store it on a separate drive, the build speed will go
up a lot.

Sorry, no.
Subversion 'owns' the working copy. That means it has to check
*everything* in it.
The ignore patterns are only to suppress the *output* of those
files/folders when showing the status. You can't ignore those when

There's an option in the settings dialog->Dialogs 2->Recurse into
unversioned folders.
Deactivate that option, and the check-for-modifications won't show those
files anymore.

As I said: update/commit/... is done by the Subversion library, not TSVN
itself. And the ignore patterns only affect the output of some
functions, it doesn't prevent them from actually accessing those.
