[PATCH] Fix tests for VS2005

> This issue, IMO, is a total bug in VS2005 but MS is saying it is 'by

So, due to MS' change in wildcard handling, a few tests fail when
Subversion is built with VS2005. This patch changes the tests that
use wildcards in property values to use the -F option rather than pass
the wildcard directly on the commandline (because VS2005 will always
expand it).

I don't see a need to do anything more (such as expand wildcards
ourselves on Win32 or change the property-present-character from * to
something else) because it only affects passing * or ? in as a
property value and is easy to workaround using the -F option...

If there are no objections, I'll commit it in a day or two.

Log message:
