If the new behaviour is 'proper behaviour' for the global ignore list,
then I would suggest a feature enhancement to have a new filter for
the commit dialog to have a new field for filtering unwanted folders.
I only care about not seeing the folder(s) being filtered in the
commit dialog. A simple set of filter(s) field on the commit dialog
would be all I would require... If anyone has used Beyond compare,
there is a nice syntax for adding/hiding items that I wish more
programs would use:


would hide obj folders, bin folders and any file with svn-base as it's
extension, and only show files that start with m

What do people think?

(I might go and implement this myself if I ever get the TortoiseSvn
source building myself...)
