Illogical behavior of svn commit

I believe I have found a usability problem in Subversion (using 1.0.1 on
Windows): Let's say I have the following working copy:

? foo-temporary.c
M foo-main.c
M foo-helper.c
M bar.c

If I do "svn commit", the M-marked files will be commited, whereas
foo-temporary.c is silently ignored.
But as I want to commit foo-main.c and foo-helper.c only, I try to do "svn
commit foo*", which causes svn to write "svn:
'C:/somewhere/foo-temporary.c' is not under version control", and the
commit is aborted. I have not found a way how to force Subversion to ignore
the file (apart from the obvious possibility of moving it away for a while).

This behavior is apparently illogical, because "svn commit" should IMHO
work identically as "svn commit *", but it does not. It would be fine if
the message was a warning only, or if it could be overriden somehow.



P.S. I am sending this for the second time, as the first mail (which I have
send some 10 hours ago via sneakemail.com to evade spam) was apparently
thrown away somehow.
