Have to say, I agree with the OP there. It would be much more convenient if unversioned folders with versioned ancestors followed the global-ignores of their ancestors.

This would allow the ignores to be completely repository-defined and let the clients operate correctly even if they have their own ignore list blank.

For performance, it should probably only check for versioned ancestors in the Commit window and in Check for Modifications, and not check when populating status icons.
