You need to provide a reproduction recipe, for us to say whether this
is a bug.

If you are doing svn add *, the shell is expanding the star prior to svn seeing
it, so that the full list of files includeing the "ignored" ones is on the
command line, and svn will allow you to add a file that matches svn:ignore
if it is explicitly listed.
