Yes, they are in the registry, but note that there are two parts of
those settings:

a) TortoiseSVN-specific settings,
b) Subversion settings, also shared by all Subversion clients

See %APPDATA%/Subversion/README.txt, it says where those
are stored (the SVN Book also has the info).

Note, that in Subversion there are system-wide (rarely used, IMHO)
and user-specific configuration settings, and that options configured in the
config files take precedence over the same ones configured in the registry.

The global ignores pattern is one example of such an option (see the
