1.7.x bug - svn add no longer accepts wildcards?

Hi,

During testing of a 1.7.x build, I've noticed that 'svn add' on trunk no
longer accepts wildcards:

svn 1.6.x:
   D:\temp\svn_sandpit\workingcopy\trunk\A>echo 1111111 1>alpha.txt
   D:\temp\svn_sandpit\workingcopy\trunk\A>echo 1111111 1>beta.txt
   D:\temp\svn_sandpit\workingcopy\trunk\A>svn add *.txt
   A alpha.txt
   A beta.txt

Whereas 1.7.x gives:
   D:\temp\svn_sandpit\workingcopy\trunk\A>echo 1111111 1>alpha.txt
   D:\temp\svn_sandpit\workingcopy\trunk\A>echo 1111111 1>beta.txt
   D:\temp\svn_sandpit\workingcopy\trunk\A>D:\temp\svn_sandpit\svn7.exe add
*.txt
   svn: warning: 'D:\temp\svn_sandpit\workingcopy\trunk\A\*.txt' not found

I thought that wildcards were expanded by the OS/Shell, and then passed to
SVN. Is this not the case?

Cheers,
