What occurs when you try this? The * is expanded by your shell;
Subversion never sees it. It should work fine. You may have to use
the --force option to svn add, since some of the files will already
have been added, and Subversion may complain that you are trying to
add them again otherwise.

How did you remove old files? Did you use "svn rm"? That would be the
correct thing to do.

Did you remove old files from the .svn directory too? If so, that
could certainly have corrupted the working copy.
