I have not tested to verify this problem. But I agree Subversion
should prevent it. Until it does, you can prevent it by writing a pre-
commit hook which tests the svn:ignore property (and possibly
svn:externals and others). If you want to correct the problem in your
existing revisions and can tolerate a dump and load cycle,
svndumptool should be able to help you.
