"cvs update -P" only affects your own checkout, not everyone else's; in
order to obtain sensible results with cvs, you should _always_ use the -P
option to update and you may often need the -d option to create any new
directories as well (though using -d is slower). If you ever run update
without -P in the future, the empty directory will come back.
(My apologies if the cvs developers have _finally_ decided to just make -P
the default and save us all the annoyance.)
