In "svn add *", the * expands to all things in the dir. That means "runs" is
effectively mentioned on the command line. "svn:ignore" only ignores things
implicitly encountered during recursion - if you explicitly mention
something on the command line, svn takes that as a signal that you are
overriding the ignore.
