[TSVN] Possible bug with the property svn:global-ignores

From: Justin M. <m.just1_at_free.fr>

Hello everyone,

I am using TortoiseSVN 1.9.2-26806 (latest publicly available release) with
Windows Pro 7 x64 and I think that I have found a problem with the
"auto-inheritance" of the "svn:global-ignores" properties.

I have defined some "svn:global-ignores" properties at the top level of my repo
in order for them to propagate into the whole directory structure recursively (I
precise that I haven't ticked the "Apply property recursively" option).

What I do / What I obtain:
When I SVN Add a batch of folders and files, the global-ignore instructions does
not seem to apply correctly, resulting in the addition of files that should have
been excluded.
When I SVN Add some files that are to be excluded, contained in an *already
version-controlled folder*, everything works as expected.

What I expect:
I would thought that the inherited properties, even if not existing yet because
the container is not version-controlled, could be (recursively) taken into
account at the SVN Add stage.

I have already checked the trunk changelog and have seen nothing in relation
with my problem in future releases.
Is this a bug? A not-supported-yet feature?
