Actually, due to the way CVS works, there is an empty directory there,
and will *always* be a directory there.  I believe that in order to
actually remove the directory, you have to have shell access to the cvs
server itself.  Most users end up setting up cvs to prune empty
directories when checking out because of this exact problem.
