That would explain it, but IIRC, I had to set this at one point; did this default behavior come about sometime between SVN 1.0.9 and 1.1.1? Thats the only thing that I can think of...

Note that I'm not complaining about this behavior! Quite the opposite in fact; SVN did what I wanted without my having to think about it; I was just surprised and was trying to dig into where all the info was stored at.

In my file at least it doesn't; it just states that if you uncomment the line then those files are ignored. My assumption is that with that line commented out NOTHING is ignored. I can see the .svn directories being ignored, but if there are files outside of those directories being ignored...it could lead to some very interesting times.
