How many files are in that directory?
Why aren't you segregating out tmp files to a temp folder?

An additional solution, which I use sparingly, is to simply set svn:ignore to *, then selectively add in files as I need them. I tend to do this for things like keeping track of Apache config files on Windows when I want the top-level directory held also, but none of the other dozen directories.

I take it because of the case-insensitivity issue that you're on Windows. If so, and you're using TortoiseSVN, you should be able to select the files you want ignored, right-click on them, then go to the TSVN Context menu and select "Add to Ignore List". It allows you to add either specific files or *.<ext>.
