Thanks for checking that. Bad on my part, it had worked before(admin deleted the executable), although I'm not sure how-- but in checking my other installs of various versions-- 1.6.12, 1.6.17, all have the line without leading space so I guess I won't worry about it. Possibly, I had a very much older version on the box-- maybe a 1.5.x..

Are you sure about that? I don't have a 1.6.10 release build around but I see the same behaviour with a Subversion 1.5 build.
Note that the parser does this because a leading space is usually used in multi-line configuration statements.
global-ignores = *.o *.lo *.la *.al .libs *.so *.so.[0-9]* *.a *.pyc *.pyo
both lines will be merged into one by the config parser. The second line is part of the previous one because it starts with whitespace.
I don't think this is very intuitive myself. Alas, that's how it was designed.
