Updating svn:gnore rule only and not file.

I'm trying to update a directory with an ignore rule, but can't find a
way to do it without updating the whole directory.

So lets say locally I created an ignore rule on some directory dirA/
and then commit that change.

svn propset svn:ignore "test.ignore" dirA/

So now I have the ignore rule committed, and anyone who updates will
have the ignore rule as well.

Now the thing is how do I update only the ignore rule and nothing
else. When I do an "svn status -u" I get something like this:

       * 2281 test.txt
       * 1978 .
Status against revision: 3393

Showing me there is a change on the directory (which is the ignore
rule) and a change in the test.txt file. The only way I know to
update that ignore rule is to do an "svn update .", however this will
also update the test.txt file, which I don't want to do. I just want
to update the ignore rule on the "." directory.

Anybody come across this situation?
