in LR3 when you exported a series of images and you would create a new folder in the process to put the new images in, the folder would be automatically created in your folders within the catalog that you were in.
Now in LR4 it doesn't. you have to right click on that folder and choose synchronize for that folder to be recognized.

Works for me in LR 4.1 64 Bit, Win7. Edit: I also tested the case when the new folder is created on a hard disk volume that was not shown in the folder list before - after the export, the volume containing the newly created folder appears, everything seems to be OK.

Which LR version on which operating system are you using? Perhaps it's a Mac-only problem.

And more important: Was the "add to this catalog" option really checked?
