svn:ignore is normally not a revision property (revprop), but a
*versioned* property (see the book for explanation about the
differences between those two). I.e. it's attached to a file or
directory, and was added or edited in either 54270 or 54271.

So, I think you'll find it by first examining which files had
properties added/updated in those revisions, and then propgetting on
those files (with a peg revision). Something like this:
# svn log -v -r 54270 file:///source/java
<check which files/dirs had properties added/updated (A or U in second column)>
# svn propget svn:ignore file:///source/java/the/path/to/the/file/or/dir_at_54270

I'm not sure how you would be able to fix them though (since it's a
versioned property, you can't just edit it like a revision property;
it's part of the history).

Maybe some of the folks on this list with more svnsync experience know
how to cope with this...
