svn add doesn't honor svn:ignore or global ignore?

I just ran into an unexpected behavior with 1.3.2 on RedHat EL here.
I want to plate /etc under version control. So i have created a repository
with a directory trunk/etc and set the svn:ignore property to "shadow*".

I did a in-place checkout to /etc :

# cd /etc
# svn co https://host.mydomain.com/svn/rhelserver/trunk/etc .

# svn propget svn:ignore

svn status honors the svn:ignore property as I expected it (the file shadow is

# svn status | grep shadow
? gshadow-
? gshadow

However if i want to add all files and directories in /etc to the repository I
would do this with 'svn add *'. This although adds also the 'shadow' file.
I didn't expect this especially because i also added 'shadow' to my global
ignore and there is the '--no-ignore' switch for svn add as well?

# svn add * | grep shadow
A gshadow
A gshadow-
A shadow
A shadow-

So is this behavior expected or do i have to pipe the output of 'svn status'
to 'svn add' and not use 'svn add *'
