How do I ignore a directory with global-ignores?

I have some directories I'd like to ignore, but I don't want to alter
the repo for everyone. I only want to ignore the directories on my
local dev environment. As far as I can tell, there's not a way to do
this with svn:ignore (since it is global for all users), so I'm trying
to use global-ignores.

I have a directory in my repo "/directory/temp" that gets automatically
generated, and I'd like to ignore it with the global-ignores setting. I
tried "directory/temp", "directory/temp/*", "/directory/temp/*", doesn't
work. I finally tried "*/directory/temp" or "*/directory/temp/*" and
both ignore the files within the directory, but not the directory
itself. I'm confused by this. Why do I need the leading "*/"? And is
there a way to ignore both the directory and all its contents?

Thanks all.
