Hmm. Works just fine for me. Added a dummy 'fred.obj' to one of my
working copies and added *.obj to TSVN's global ignore pattern. It
definitely does not show up in check for modifications.

In your global ignore list, how are you separating multiple items? It
should be with a space. If you use a semicolon it does not work. Try
using *only* '*.bat' as your ignore pattern and see if that works.

I don't think the global ignore list will stop any scanning; it just
discards any result which matches the pattern.
