Is there a "cvs -d" equivalent in svn?

(I'm using Subversion 1.4.3) One of my users came to me with an interesting
problem which I don't know how to solve. He isn't getting newly added
directories when he does an 'svn update'. For example:

$ pwd
$ ls
subdirB subdirC subdirD
$ svn ls
subdirB subdirC subdirD subdirE subdirF
$ svn update
At revision 639.
$ ls
subdirB subdirC subdirD

Why didn't Subversion fetch subdirE and subdirF?? In CVS I would tell him
to always use "cvs update -d" which would fetch any newly created
directories. Is there a Subversion equivalent way to update and get all
newly created directories?

I told him to explicitly update the subdirE and subdirF directories, but is
there a way to update and get new directories without having to know what
directories are missing?

To finish out the example:

$ svn update subdirE subdirF
A subdirE
A subdirF
Updated to revision 639.
$ ls
subdirB subdirC subdirD subdirE subdirF

Thanks for helping out with this mystery.
