Usually when something like this occurs I use 'sup -o'; it did fix
this same problem for me.

I think this problem occurs when permissions problems (like mode 700
directories, *ahem*) prevent CVS checkouts of changed sources into the
tree on the sup server.  If you update via sup while the permissions
are broken, sup won't update the hidden files when the permissions are
fixed, because they haven't been 'changed' since your last sup update.

Hopefully you'll feel better soon.
