This is the expected behaviour.  "cvs update" gives you new files
in directories you already have, but does NOT give you newly
created directories.  To get the latter, type "cvs update -d".

One possible explanation for the "but not always" part: perhaps
some people (but not everyone) has "-d" in their .cvsrc's.
