If you want it to pay attention to the ignore pattern, then use 'svn add
.' instead. (The shell expands '*' to all files, which will override
the ignores since they've been explicitly named. Which is why it'll
include all files in the current dir and then start paying attention to
the ignores for the subdirs.)

Using spot-reverts as Duncan suggested works as well, of course :)
