does "svn:ignore" not work properly in svn 1.4.3?

colleague using svn 1.4.3 wanted to know how to remove all the
output from "svn status" related to generated executables that are all
placed in a working copy top-level dir named "bin".

  no problem, says i, just (from the top of the working copy):

  $ svn propset svn:ignore bin .

did that and ... no effect. i can do a "svn propget" and, sure
enough, "bin" is the sole entry for that property, but "svn status"
still insists on entering that directory and listing as unversioned,
every single generated executable in there.

  am i doing something obviously silly? thanks.
