Perhaps because you didn't use the -d option of the update command, as in
cvs update -d

         Create  any directories that exist in the repository if they're miss-
         ing from the  working  directory.   Normally,  update  acts  only  on
         directories  and  files  that  were  already enrolled in your working

         This is useful for updating directories  that  were  created  in  the
         repository since the initial checkout; but it has an unfortunate side
         effect.  If you  deliberately  avoided  certain  directories  in  the
         repository  when  you  created your working directory (either through
         use of a module name or by listing explicitly the files and  directo-
         ries you wanted on the command line), then updating with -d will cre-
         ate those directories, which may not be what you want.
