No, I don't see the the new folders this way. There should be another way. I
have to check this at work, where I have my own CVS server and where I am
using WinCVS as clients.
I just go to the root folder and issue the update command with create
missing directories checked . The missing folders appear magically on my PC.
I will come back to you soon, hopefully with a solution to see the new
folders from the CVS server.
