CVS "forgets" directories

I have the following problem: I have a repository with some
The subdirectories are not empty. When I do a cvs co for the project,
all files and subdirectories and files get checked out correctly. If I
do a cvs update however (even immediately after the checkout) cvs
reports all directories as unknown (commandline, WinCVS, and PCL-CVS).
If I try to add the directories, cvs complains that they are already in
the repository (which is correct). In addition, WinCVS always thinks
that all files are modified. I have other projects in my repository
which work fine; it is just the one that misbehaves. The only thing I
can think of that is different with this project is that it contains
potentially problematic filenames. Ie filename with spaces and
characters like '%', '@', etc. The problems are not limited to these
files however. Any ideas?
