Had you seen svn proplist --verbose ? That will also list property
contents. svn propget svn:ignore TARGET will also do it for you.

Now, you might want to check ~/.subversion to see if your configuration
has a default exclude with .DS_Store in it. That might be the case...

Now, as to the question of where is svn:ignore stored ? Well, you
/assign/ the property to a folder/directory object, and it ignores it's
patterns in the immediate folder.

So, given the followin tree:

If I do:
svn propset svn:ignore "*.o" /wc

/wc/file.o will be ignored, but not /wc/lib/file.o.

Hope that helps !
