Nope, that was OK.


However I believe I've found the problem. The global-ignores statement in
the 'config' file is case-sensitive--"*.obj" is not the same as "*.OBJ", and
it was the latter form that I happened to have in my working directory.
Working with a case-insensitive OS, I tend to forget about case. Once I got
the case to match, everything worked as expected.

By the way, I couldn't find any mention of case-sensitivity for this
situation in the Subversion book or in the config file comments. Adding a
short reminder might help others avoid this particular problem.
