Subject: 'cvs update' skipping directories


For the past few months I've been seeing some problems with "cvs update"
related to repositories I've set up.

Basically, if I do a check-out I get everything. But if someome else
adds a directory I sometimes (but not always) won't get a copy of that
directory when doing "cvs update". It's just ignored completely, as if
were operating on two different respositoroes. And yes, I think it's
to directories and not individual files.

I just saw it again on a fresh repository. I had done "cvs init", "cvs
CVSROOT", edited modules, "cvs commit", manually greated the module
directory in the repository. Then I test it out and it seemed to work
but just when myself and another person were going to start using it we
into the update problem again (and were even accessing CVS *as the same
user*!). I would add a directory with a file in it, and when he did "cvs
update" he saw absolutely nothing of that directory.

What on earth could this be? I'm not doing anything "funny", so I don't
understand what these random errors are coming from.
