Yes, I can... I'm not sure what you're implying--do you think that [Tt]ext.txt does not work in a shell, but it does in svn:ignore, or that it doesn't work in svn:ignore, but it does in a shell...

In any case, it does work in various shells (bash, csh, tcsh), and http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.6/svn.advanced.props.special.ignore.html says it works in svn:ignore.

But back to the original question, you're saying that *.vshost.exe* in svn:ignore will not match somefile.vshost.exe.manifest? If so, that's very surprising, and if the red-bean book is correct that "Subversion uses the one most commonly found in Unix systems implemented as the fnmatch system function," a bug in SVN.
