You didn't understand the answer! Subversion didn't parse the '!' at
all. The shell parse the '!' even before it invoke the 'svn' command.
Subversion didn't see the '!' at all!

And it is the shell complaining that no such event was found. Even
before subversion is ever invoked above.

So it has nothing to do with Subversion at all!
