Question on global ignores

From: Kenneth McDonald <kenneth.m.mcdonald_at_sbcglobal.net>

My ~/.subversion/config file looks like this:

editor-cmd = emacs

### Set global-ignores to a set of whitespace-delimited globs
### which Subversion will ignore in its 'status' output.
global-ignores = *.o *.lo *.la #*# .*.rej *.rej .*~ *~ .#* .DS_Store
*.pyc *.class

After editing some files in a directory under Subversion control,
the contents of the directory looked like this:

README.FIRST.txt subversion-book.pdf subversion_config_file~
README.FIRST.txt~ subversion_config_file svn-commit.tmp~

I did a commit, a 'rm *~', and a 'svn status', which gave me the

! subversion_config_file~

My understanding is that the global-ignores option should have caused
the files ending with '~' to be ignored by 'svn status'. (Are they still
stored in the repository?) This doesn't seem to be happening. Is
this correct behavior? If so, what am I misunderstanding?
