svn:ignore not working on directories - what am I doing wrong ?

I can't get svn to ignore a directory.

My project (a website based on spip cms) has a "CACHE" directory (under
the project root). As its name implies, there's no point versionning it,
so I did not imported it in the repository !-)

Now since this dir can be quite large, I'd like not to heard of it
anymore. So what I did:

-> svn propedit svn:ignore .
-> typed CACHE in the editor
-> saved and quit
-> commited (ok)

But still the whole dir and it's content appears (as unversionned of
course) when I svn status :(

I've read the doc, I've searched thru this ml's archives, I've tried
many variants (/CACHE, CACHE/, CACHE*, etc), I've tried with another
editor, I've tried adding whitespace, new lines, whatever...

I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong - but I guess it must be
obvious (as usual...).

Any hint anyone ?

NB : gentoo linux, svn version 1.2.1 (r15230)
NB 2 : globals ignore on emacs backups (*.*~) works fine
