Check the properties on the folder where you set the ignores: if the
properties are named "svn:ignore", then that's the correct behavior.
You have to use the "svn:global-ignores" property instead, which is used
automatically if you add the ignores with the menu that has the
"(recursively)" at the end.

Or if you set them manually, just use the svn:global-ignores property.
