CVS not always updating in windows client

Hi all,

I'm having a quite strange problem with CVS (version 1.11.17). I use CVS in
eclipse (on a windows 2000 client) and it works fine, but in certain cases
(on only two clients) changes will not be updated. I'll describe the problem
and the steps I took trying to solve it.


When a user creates a new folder with in it a new file and then commits,
everything goes well.
When an other user does an update, CVS doesn't detect any changes. When the
other user creates a new folder with the same name as the comitted folder
and then does an update the new files are loaded.

The workaround now is: close the project in eclipse, do a checkout from the
CVS project and then all the changes are loaded.

I've tried the following to detect whats the problem: 

-I created new CVS users to be shure that was not the problem
-Since CVS works perfectly on some clients I thought it was a eclipse
problem. I installed on an other client exact the same version of eclipse
with the same plugins and on that client CVS works fine
-I copied the whole eclipse folder to the client having the problems and the
problem remains.

>From these steps I concluded that it was a client problem. 
Are there any known problems concerning CVS updates on a windows 2000
client. I was thinking on a sort of timing problem, but I'm not sure.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
