Then forget svn:ignore - it doesn't apply to versioned files.

You could lock the file in each branch where it occurs, or set the 
svn:lock property, to make it more difficult for others to tamper with 
it. But in my experience, with TortoiseSVN, people will simply click all 
the dialog boxes to steal/grab locks they get. The better resolution is 
to stop the temptation to edit such files: offer an alternative or 
unversion it.
