No, *you're* missing the point. A reasonable person would assume that adding the file to the ignore list means to get SVN to ignore the file. While a file may be listed in svn:ignore, it's not actually on the ignore list if SVN isn't ignoring it.

That fails to do what the OP asked. Maybe you should try actually reading his question.
