Question regarding branch merges

I've got a branch that I've been keeping in line with the HEAD of the trunk by 
merging via :

cvs update -d -j <foottag> -j HEAD 

in my branch sandbox, and then committing the results and moving the foottag on 
the trunk to the HEAD . 

This works great.. However - there is one issue I'm seeing.. New directories on 
the trunk (and any new files in them) do not get merged into my sandbox. New 
files in existing directories do, but new directories containing new files do 

Does anyone have any idea if this is a  design limitation or a bug in cvs? Or 
am I just doing something wrong?

Thanks in  advance!
