Em.. In fact, I think glob is expanded by the shell on Linux only. 
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glob_%28programming%29#Implementations )
And it looks like svn "emulates" Linux-style wildcard expansion somehow.
Maybe this is what issue 787 is all about.

One more related discussion:
( http://subversion.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=462&dsMessageId=236049 )
I understand that making svn behave similar on both platforms is a good idea.... 
I don't know how to fix this issue without breaking something else either...
It looks like you're right and the safest way for a user is just not to use wildcards at all...

I did a quick search through the issue tracker and didn't found anything similar...
So, I've just submitted the issue http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4393
.

Thanks for your answers!
