svn status * stops when it finds a folder that isn't a WC

A co-worker noticed an irritating property of "svn status" (using
version 1.3.0 on Windows).

He has a folder to which he checks out various projects that he is
working on, e.g. C:\Dev. That folder itself is not a working copy,
but most of the folders inside it are.

He discovered that:

cd \Dev
svn st *

Will fail if it encounters a folder that isn't a working copy and it
will not continue with all of the other folders that would match *.
There error message is simple enough:

svn: 'aaa' is not a working copy

We stood there and said, "ok, what about all the others?" but "svn
status" doesn't feel like telling me.

Is this considered a bug? I can work around it a bit with a batch
file... but I would like subversion to not give up so easily.
Perhaps there could be a command-line option to force it to continue.
