Right, that's what the question mark means. (Well, it doesn't mean
temporary, but it does mean not-under-version-control.)

If you did it exactly that way, I can imagine it didn't: each line
should hold a separate file (pattern) like this:

Exactly. See your Subversion configuration files and search for
"global ignores". There are more items in the list by default, but it
can be customized.

Using the svn:ignore property on the containing directory: you were on
the right track!
