Update doesn't get new directories by default, you need to use the -d
option.  (The reason is that CVS doesn't have any way to tell the
difference between a newly added directory and an old one that you
explicitly didn't checkout.)  If you want that behavior all the time,
you can add it to your ~/.cvsrc file.

bad that it can't get worse. -- Calvin
