Plus you've also helped by telling me that the ignore property does not mean ignore, it means sometimes ignore. On page 68 of the book it explains that the ignore property is used to eliminate files from svn status. But your explanation matches my observations, thank you. The book is wrong again.
Page 68 of the PDF version of the book is within the section "Ignoring Unversioned Items", but the items you're talking about are versioned, not unversioned.
"svn import" will obey your svn autoprops:
But I often prefer to avoid the "svn import" command and do an "in-place import" instead:
This affords you the opportunity to be more selective about what you import and to add properties before committing.
