Subversion already behaves different in this respect, I belive. On Unix, the
wildcards are expanded very early during processing (by the shell). That means
the wildcard will not be applied on files in subdirecotries. On Windows, on the
other hand, the wildcards seem to expand in a very late state, while walking
recursively through the directory tree. In this case they are used to filter
file names within subdirectories, too.

That means the same
   svn propset -R <propname> <value> <wildcard>
command will right now set the property on a different set of files (depending
on the OS), if <wildcard> describes a pattern that matches files and
directories.

Is that true or am I on a wrong track here? I am still a svn beginner.
