Not true, it is also defined for a directory.  Given an ignore
rule of "folder1" either a file or a directory named "folder1"
should be ignored.  If the ignore rule is "folder1/" then only
a directory called folder1 is ignored.

If isEntryIgnored is returning false and you are certain the ignore
rule matches the folder (case matters to Git even if it doesn't to
the filesystem!), it suggests a bug in the new ignore code.
