>Synopsis: empty subdirectory is missing after 'cvs co -D "some date"'

Our project ("sieglinde") has a source tree with several subdirectories.
One of them is called testing, it contains:
The problem: when I do a (fresh) checkout with a date specification, like
cvs co -D "23 September 2004 8pm" sieglinde
cvs co -D NOW
then I do not get the ./testing/scripts/out directory. This directory was
added one week ago to the repository. When I cd to the /testing/scripts/
directory then I do get the out/ directory with
cvs update -d
But since the directory was already in CVS at 23 September 2004 8pm,
I think it should already have been included in the initial checkout.
Our users think so too, I would like to know if this is indeed a bug or
that we are somehow misunderstanding the functionality of CVS.
Our CVS repository is in pub.amanda.wisc.edu:/net/local/cvsroot but I do
not know if it supports anonymous checkouts.
if it does:
cvs -d $CVSROOT co -D "23 September 2004 8pm" sieglinde
cvs -d $CVSROOT co sieglinde
