Thanks, Bob -- I believe I've resolved this, but for the record --

"bin" folder has NOT been versioned to repository. I just checked.

No .svn folders in repository. Again, I just checked.

I think it knows to ignore ".svn", but it's not ignoring the folder
which now contains additional items, so the folder itself is now
"different". I'm not sure whether or not I'm describing a bug.

Thank you, I need to locate that forum. I have a number of unrelated
issues with Eclipse as well.

But this might again be a file vs. folder issue. As I'd posted in
another response, adding "**/.svn/" to the exclusion list seems to
work. I suppose for "**/.svn" it's looking for ".svn" as a file, but
with "**/.svn/" it knows that it's a folder.

> What exactly is your global ignores set to? I'm thinking that global ignore are for files only and don't work for folder names.

I have not changed the "ignores" in the "subversion configuration
file" -- I tried that, and it had no effect, so I put it back the way
it was.

The "Global ignore pattern:" includes a long list of items, including
"*.dcu" (Pascal object), "*.class" (Java class file), "bin", "bin/*",
"*.zip" (compressed file), "*.Zip" (it's case sensitive, even tho
Windows isn't), etc. etc. etc. (I would imagine asking it to be case
insensitive on a Windows platform is a feature request.)

I'm thinking that if it's only looking at files, the "bin" and "bin/*"
are probably not having any effect at all, since those are folders.

I don't know enough about this stuff to determine whether I'm just
setting it wrong, or if a "Folder/Directory Ignore" is a feature

Thanks again for your response.
