There is no way _not_ to get the new directories. "svn update" always
fetches all new data. I can't explain why it didn't do that for you,
other than that your working copy is messed up. Check out a new
working copy and see if you can replicate the problem there. If not,
continue using that working copy and trash the broken one.
