A web project in NetBeans. The cvs root is

NetBeans politely created a .cvsignore file for me with build and dist in it, and neither of these directories gets committed when I commit the rest of the project. There is another directory "fullbuild" in this project that I use for my own, non-Netbeans non-CVS purposes. I added this directory to .cvsignore (using the NetBeans "ignore" feature, right clicking in the Files view).  I have verified that fullbild is in .cvsignore.  When I do a CVS "show changes" or "commit" it wants to commit fullbuild and all of the files and subdirectories in it.  If I do a "cvs -nq update" from the command line, fullbuild is ignored as it should be.

I've closed and reopened the project, and also closed NB and deleted the cache.  Still acts the same.
Comment 1 Ondrej Vrabec 2015-02-09 08:53:17 UTC
Are the files in "fullbuild" marked as New (green) or Modified (blue)?
Comment 2 mclaborn 2015-02-09 15:06:52 UTC
They are showing as new (green).
Comment 3 Ondrej Vrabec 2015-02-27 15:01:22 UTC
works for me.
As you can see on the screenshot, fullbuild is ignored as well as its children, .cvsignore contains fullbuild.
Just to be sure, is the "fullbuild" folder under the same directory as the .cvsignore file that ignores it?
