For historical reasons, local checkout and update do not prune empty
directories unless you use the -P option (which really should be the
default).  Many people like to put that in their ~/.cvsrc file so they
don't have to remember to type it all the time.

that they'll embrace any preposterous delusion rather than face an
occasional bleak truth? -- Calvin
