Hi Tim -

It's necessary to call 'cvs update' with the '-d' option in order the 
obtain directories from CVS that aren't already sitting in your working 
directory. Eg.

cvs update -d

Normally 'cvs update' acts only on files and directories which are 
already on your local machine, so if someone creates a new directory you 
don't get it by default. Annoying, I know.
