Correction to the above. The default ignore pattern is only used when
no other ignore pattern is defined. As soon as you put something into
the global ignores setting in TSVN, a registry key is created. If you
then delete that value again the empty registry key still exists, so
subversion stops using its default list.

This is somewhat confusing but I am not sure there is a good
work-around to stop this happening without potentially disrupting
other subversion clients unintentionally, particularly as TSVN
installs for all users by default.

One way of clarifying what is happening is this:
If there is no global ignore registry key defined, put some text in
the edit box like "(using subversion defaults)", maybe in grey. As
soon as you focus on the edit box that text disappears and you can
type in your own pattern, or none at all. Click on OK to save, and the
registry value is written.

Personally I don't see the value of providing a default ignore list,
so I have no problem with making it easy to blow away, but we can't
just let the installer do it.

Simon
