When adding directories the line

mkdir([DIRNAME]. 0777);

will not create a directory with permissions other than root. Attempted using command with umask(0000); but made no difference.

PHP is denied permission to set these privileges. How is this fixed?

PHP 4.0.6 was compiled on my Raq3 as an Apache module.

sticky bits set on the directory you try to create it in ?

sticky bit of directory I try to create it in are set are set to '2 joey' as default. The directory created by PHP sets a sticky bit of '2 httpd' with no permission other than root.

so you think it's a sticky problem then?

Problem solved.

Clearly not a bug as it can be alleviated by setting the sticky with mkdir([DIR], 01777);

However, unusual as this workaround has not been needed on other systems we use. Thanks for the quick turnaround.
