I'm not sure what you are saying here? Are you saying that you can't apply a property to a folder that is NOT versioned? If so, that is correct.

Since the folder isn't yet versioned, there is no way to apply a property to it. I'm not sure how this could ever work.

Generally, global ignores are done at the project or repository level... that the whole point of them, so you don't have to add svn:ignore to every new folder, you can put an svn:global-ignores at your project root and it would apply to anything you are adding under that path recursively, including when using the import command.
