I'm using the vim project plugin to manage a project, and whenever a new file goes in I need to use \R to refresh the project tree. This is fine, but I recently created a new directory in the tree, and \R doesn't update it and put it into the project.

What am I doing wrong?

I think you need to use **/* as the filter pattern as the default pattern is * which does not descend into directories. See :he glob() and :he wildcards for details.
