Ah, I had missed that... as the documentation at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.6/svn.advanced.props.special.ignore.html says, "When found on a versioned directory, the svn:ignore property is expected to contain a list of newline-delimited file patterns that Subversion should use to determine ignorable objects in that same directory."

You're not supposed to put multiple patterns on a single line in svn:ignore. I guess it's a bit confusing though, since the global ignore pattern (e.g., TSVN's Settings dialog, or in the SVN config file, *does* have multiple patterns on one line.
