Running 'svn add *' is the same as running 'svn add foo bar baz bop

And, when you explicitly name a target, 'svn add' will add it no matter
what, even if it's in the global-ignores.

What you want to do is run 'svn add .'. Then everything in '.' will be
scheduled for addition, skipping things that are already under version
control, and skipping global-ignores. If you want the command to
recurse into version-controlled directories, add '--force'.
