Ignores (global or otherwise) are for unversioned items only. For
example, the patterns filter out stuff in add and import requests (to
prevent you from making certain unversioned resources into versioned
ones). For status requests, they filter out unversioned resources
which would otherwise appears with '?' indicators. But once
versioned, Subversion never ignores an item.
