I agree, and I don't think this is specific to Windows. At least, any
use of wildcards with -R is unintuitive; the user expects SVN to expand
the wildcards in each subdirectory, when in fact it does not.

Of course, any attempt by Subversion to expand wildcards internally
would interact with the shell's wildcard expansion, and would cause all
sorts of problems with filenames that legitimately contain wildcard
characters...
