svn:ignore has never worked this way. The svn:ignore property only ignores
new unversioned files from being added. Perhaps you were using a GUI client
in the past that offered a feature like you describe? I doubt it would have
piggy-backed off the svn:ignore property though. More likely the GUI would
have added its own property.
