The other gotcha is that 'svn add *' on a UNIXlike client will result in
the ignores getting ignored (ie. files that should have been ignored get
added regardless) in the current directory, while being properly ignored
for all subdirectories. Which makes sense if you remember how shell
expansion works, but is really weird the first time you see it :)
That's why I suggested the 'svn add .' first.
