Files with .a extensions are auto-ignored?

I just subscribed to the list, so I hope it's the right place to report a strange and quite disturbing behavior I just discovered.
I couldn't find anything about it elsewhere, sorry if this is a known issue or feature anyway.

The problem:
When copying new files into a versioned directory, which have a file extension ".a", they are immediately marked as "ignored".
You still can explicitly add them to the repository with the "Add" command though, but they don't show up in the usual "Commit" window, even if "Show unversioned files" is checked.

This is quite annoying as developers tend to forget to "add" files manually. :-) In our case, those ".a" files are generated into different folders, so it's a real party killer currently.

Just updated my TortoiseSVN to the latest public version to check, if the issue is still there - and it is.
(TortoiseSVN 1.5.5, Build 14361 - 32 Bit , 2008/10/24 18:06:34)

So - in short - for some reason, ".a" files behave exactly like files, which are on the "svn:ignore" property list.
No global ignore patterns or svn:ignore properties are set and it's not repository-dependant either.

Can somebody confirm this as a bug?

Thanks in advance,
