This is expected. We had it once honor the global ignore settings, but
that's not what people expected when dropping files/folders onto the
repository browser.

Also, the way I personally use this is after I tag a release, I drop the
binaries and debug symbols into that release tag (because I tag the
release, then export that release tag and do a clean build, so I have to
add the binaries *after* the tagging). And since I have all binary
extensions in my global ignore pattern, that would be not what I want.
