svn:ignore not working completely

Hi

A subversion-newbie here. I recently set up my svn system, but can't
work out why some svn:ignore settings do not result in svn status
ignoring them. They keep showing in svn status as '?' (unversioned
file).

What I am doing is the following (from the command line):

% cat ~/Projects/Labsite/ignore_list
mod_python_test/*
mod_python_test
styles/*.tmproj
styles/images.zip
portfolio/rietveld/testimage_*
python/*.tmproj
python/LocalConf.py
python/*.pyc
python/templates/*.bak
python/templates/*.pyc
python/admin/*.pyc
python/error/*.pyc

% svn propset svn:ignore -F ~/Projects/Labsite/ignore_list .
property 'svn:ignore' set on '.'

% svn status
? python/LocalConf.py
? python/LabSite_wwwPython.tmproj
? python/templates/item.pyc
? python/templates/object.pyc
? python/templates/page.pyc
? python/templates/collection.pyc
? python/templates/poster.pyc
? python/templates/BaseSkeleton.pyc
? python/templates/cluster.pyc
? python/templates/article.pyc
? python/templates/FrameworkViewComponents.pyc
? python/templates/project.pyc
? styles/images.zip
? styles/styles.tmproj

My problem is that I would like the result of 'svn status' to be empty.

The strange thing is only *some* of the files I want to ignore, keep
showing in 'svn status'. I.e the command 'svn status --no-ignore'
also shows a whole list of files with the proper 'I' status. However
I couldn't figure out what the difference was between those file and
the ones listed above under 'svn status'.
Also the more I seem to try set more svn:ignore statements, the more
files loose their ignore-status.

How does the svn:ignore system is suppose to work? What could I be
doing wrong?
What should I be doing to make those files no show up with 'svn status'?

Thanks
d
