If you explicitly add a file that would match an ignored pattern,
it will still get added.
However, if such a file is in a folder and you "svn add" this folder,
then it will be ignored.

In your working copy you create a folder called "testfolder". In it a file
called "test.bak". Now do "svn add testfolder". You will notice that
test.bak is indeed ignored as expected.
Now change into your testfolder and do "svn add test.bak" and you will
see, that this time your file gets added.

So someone must have explicitly added these files for you, or your
config file is not yet correct. Which client did you use? Command
line? TSVN?

You are going to have both, VSS and SVN side by side? Is there maybe a
way of making a cut one day and switch?

I did just that the other day in my company and it worked like a
charm. I did write a script, that automatically converts a VSS
database to svn with the help of the vss2svn script.

I did make a lot of "dry runs" to fine tune my script for our needs to
make sure my script works perfectly on the day of the cut. It did and
we switched from VSS to SVN over night and so far had no problems at
all. :-)

Maybe this is not an option in your case, but it could be worth
considering this :-)
