update not getting empty directories

I have a problem where a repository on a lan shared disk (both via nfs and samba) sometimes checkouts and updates ignore directories that only contain other directories, even if those sub-directories contain source files.

so if $CVSROOT/foo only has a directory called bar in it $CVSROOT/foo/bar

If I do a cvs update, I will not get foo or bar. I also get this if foo is completely empty. I know that cvs treats directories differently than files but I don't really get the use mode here. Also, some clients handle this differently. For example, on a redhat 8.0 workstation, I have this problem and I cannot get foo if it is empty. However, on a solaris machine cvs update will grab the empty directory.

Is there any way to make all clients always check out everything even if the directories are empty??

On solaris we are using cvs version 1.11 and on linux we are using cvs version 1.11.2

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
