Yes, I did. Thanks for pointing it out...

that's strange that this would be the case. It would have been nice to
be able to check such "global" changes into the repository. The
property can still only apply to the current directory, but the values
of that property would span whatever the pattern would be... I am sure
the creators thought this was a bad idea and didn't just overlook it.
Probably has to do with the folder being a first-class object... Oh,
well...

Thanks for the help though.

Yaakov.
