   sorry for the late reply, I was out of the office last week.

Yes, unfortunately this is a problem that I experienced, too. I don't 
know why this is happening and what a proper solution would be.

However, there are two ways to work around it. One would be to 
checkout just the newly added ampersand module into your already 
checked out module. The other would be to checkout the complete 
(changed) module into a new directory tree and copy the entire 
checked out new ampersand module subdir into your original checked 
out module. (Hope this isn't too confusing.) I'm not sure if the 
latter is a wise way to handle things, but so far it has worked for 

If anybody knows a proper solution for this little quirk, I'd be 
grateful for any hints.
