The global ignore list is intended for ignoring particular types of
file that will never be of interest, no matter which repository you
have checked out. For a programmer these would be things like *.obj
*.lst, which the compiler generates.

If you want to ignore a particular folder within your working copy
tree then you need to use the parent folder's ignore list (which is a
subversion property). Just right click on the folder and use TSVN->Add
to ignore list.
