Subversion isn't handling the wildcard, the shell is. So the actual
commands being executed are:
"svn commit"
vs
"svn status"

(Unless, of course, there are other files matching the wildcard
test.* in the same directory)

If it helps, look at the output of
echo svn commit test.*
echo svn status test.*

(svn status displays nothing if the input does not describe a
versioned file)
