You could write a script that polls the desired directory and uses Galaxy's API 
to upload new files.  See <galaxy install dir>/scripts/api/README for some 
information.  The distribution includes a script in this same directory to 
upload library datasets ( library_upload_from_import_dir.py ).

Assuming you are adding sub-folders from the Shared Data -> Data Libraries view 
( and not the Admin - Manage data libraries view ), this may be a result of 
permissions that have been placed on the library or parent folder in which you 
are adding sub-folders.  The behavior you see could be a bug, but if so, I'll 
need some help tracking it down.  Can you confirm from what view you are adding 
hte sub-folders, and what the permissions are on the parent folder and library?
