Your shell (not Subversion) expands the asterisk. By the time the
shell is through with it, the command Subversion sees is:

svn add log this tmp

And since, as far as Subversion can tell, you explicitly told it to
add those items, it will do so, even though it would have ignored
them, had you not specified them explicitly.
