Setting property to ignore folder recursively sets entire workspace with CVS subfolders.

Hi folks, can I ask for some help, please? -- I've searched for two days and don't find anything like my issue:

I am using TortoiseSVN 1.4.4 Build 9706 on a fully-patched WinXP 32-bit, repository is 1.4 using svnserve on OpenSuSE 10.2.

Issue is on a project at fourth version level (several other projects are also using this repository without problems).

Issue with this project: During a work session, I created a scratch folder for regular use. I ran an "Add" and it of course included that folder, which I had meant to ignore.

I then context-clicked on that folder to add it to the ignore list, but TSVN did not present me with the option to add it to the ignore list.

So I context-clicked again choosing the TSVN "Properties" and manually edited the svn:ignore property to add the folder to the list, checked the "recursive" box and OK.

After several minutes, the sandbox tree was redisplayed, and ALL 97 folders had a "CVS" subfolder added to it with six files "Entries*,...etc" in each one. What a mess!

I have never, ever used CVS, now I have this mess in my sandbox and I am scared to death to commit the kluge.

Please: 1) why did it do this?, 2) how do I fix it?, and the bonus question, 3) why didn't i get the "ignore" option for the folder right at the beginning of all this?

Many, many thanks, for help you can give, -craig
