 This works for the files, but not for the folders.

Also, to make sure we're on the same page:
Are you using the following syntax (relative and with peg revisions)
in the externals property?

    ../../somedir@1234 somedir
    ../../somefile@3214 somefile

Or are you using this syntax (with operative revisions instead of peg

    -r1234 ../../somedir somedir
    -r3214 ../../somefile somefile

Or perhaps a mix of both?
