CVS prune empty directories problem

Running IDEA 11.0.2 on Windows 7, I have noticed that occasionally doing a CVS Update Directories command will re-create empty directories in my local modules.   (These are directories left over from one of our many refactors.)   They seem to appear/disappear almost at random when doing updates.    I have verified that the "Prune Empty Directories" checkbox is checked, so I don't know what's going on.
