Problems with propset svn:ignore

I'd like to exclude a settings-file in my working copy from being
I guess this is a common task... ;-)

The original settings-file for deployment is versioned, so after a
checkout I have it in the working directory.
I just don't want to submit any changes I make on the settings-file.

What I did was:

svn propset svn:ignore 'settings.py' .

a 'svn propget svn:ignore .' gives me 'settings.py', so I thought this
file would be ignored.
But when I make changes to settings.py in my working directory, 'svn
status' gives me

M settings.py

, so subversion knows settings.py has been modified, and the
modifications will be submitted at the next commit.

Now I'm a little confused...
I thought svn would ignore settings.py?
