It was the last part i was wondering about. Keeping the file, but not under Subversion.
I find it strange that there isn't any other way to do it. having to remove sounds like a hack.
anyway, thanks for the input.

Just use the "ignore" options in Tortoise SVN.

Where did you find that?

So you may need to do the following:
1) Move the file out of the working copy
2) Commit changes and make sure to mark the file for deleting
3) Copy the file back in
4) Select "Add to ignore list" in Tortoise menu

Strange that that is not possible through the menu options.

But I guess SVN doesn't see it as it's problem.

At this point, I want to remove these files from the subversion repository, but not delete them. If I copy them out of the working copy, then do a svn del, and copy them back, the problem is solved from my point of view. But it is not solved from the point-of-view of other users. When they try to update, their preferences file will be deleted. And then they'll be very annoyed!
See the problem?

This will put a property on the parent folder telling svn to ignore certain file name patterns within. The file you wish to ignore has to be a new file that is not yet added to the repository, otherwise TortoiseSVN won't show the ignore option.

But is there any way to do this once a file has already, inappropriately been added to a repository? It ought to be possible to release a file from svn control without actually deleting it.

Unfortunately, I haven't seen this implemented yet, though it could probably be done quite simply - maybe an idea to write to the TortoiseSVN team?
To repeat - the solution for now seems to be:
1. Backup your file
2. Delete it from the repository
3. Copy the file back into position
4. Add it to the ignore list

Right mouse button/Tortoise SVN/Export
and then to export to itself (name the same folder as the export-to folder)
Result: all .svn-folders in all subfolders are removed!

svn delete --keep-local filename
