You seem to be confusing TSVN and SVN. SVN is a command line client
and has no commit dialog. The commit dialog is part of TSVN, so if the
commit dialog says it is unversioned then that is its subversion
status. That means that TSVN is taking account of the blank and not
ignoring the file, which is expected since it is the SVN library, not
any TSVN code, which decides whether a file is ignored or not.

It sounds more like you are having a problem with icon overlays which
can happen if there are not enough overlay slots available in Windows
