Agreed. I have run into this same situation, and finally just quit using the purge thingy since it was driving me insane and doing very odd things to my target respository.

Yep, which is what I see too so the manual contradicts that. Since a purge is only supposed to happen on files that exist on the target but not
the source, and the manual says that using ignore with a purge will not
purge the file, then any ignore=file on a purge copy should skip those
files that exist on the target but not the source.

I think a Cfengine just needs to be fixed to work according that both
scenarios which would make the most sense to me.  If an ignore is defined,
it should truly ignore everything, source and destination, whether files
are there or not.

Through experimentation I have found that if you create the file in the
master area (zero length is okay)  and it exists on the destination then
it will be ignored.  If the file does NOT exist in  master area if will
be deleted on a purge.
