Cannot add to Subversion excluded folder/file

I created a new folder in IDEA then accept to add it to Subversion, it appeared in Changes list. Then I excluded it from Project Structure settings. At this time, I cannot add it to Subversion but the folder still appears in Changes list. Same problem with adding files.

IDEA should support me to add them. Or I need to play with a Subversion client?

The intended behavior is that excluded folders should not be visible anywhere
(not in Project View, not in Changes view, etc.) - that's the point of the
"exclude" feature. If you do need to perform some operations on them, you
need either to un-exclude, or to use an external SVN client.

Thanks, Dmitry

Correction is "I cannot commit it to Subversion but the folder still appears in Changes list"

Let me run this by you. I am developing a web app, and I deploy my changes to tomcat. I exclude the tomcat folder because indexing it takes forever and I don't want it indexed anyway. The problem is that occasionally I want to edit files directly in my webapps folder (to avoid having to deploy for test code). Is there anyway I can exclude tomcat from indexes but still be able to access it without having to leave intellij?
