Description:
------------
When safe_mode is enabled mkdir('newdir/',0770); doesnt function. When safe_mode is disabled it functions fine. Sure, there shouldnt be a trailing slash there perhaps but most PHP software uses paths similar to '/home/user/domain/test/' so this is a problem.

This appeared in 5.2.3 or 5.2.4 I am not so sure.

This is not a permissions based problem as the folder is created when backslash is not used in safe_mode, and it is created when backslash is used and NOT in safe_mode

It seems to be the same bug with(perhaps somehow reintroduced?):
http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=16638

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
  mkdir('myhomefolder/',0770);
  //mkdir('myhomefolder',0770);
?>

The problem is the trailing slash and safe_mode...

Expected result:
----------------
myhomefolder should get created.

Actual result:
--------------
Warning: mkdir(): Unable to access myhomefolder/ in /home/user/domain/test.php on line 3

I see the same error in 5.2.5 release. Are you sure that this is fixed? When you said that it is fixed in CVS it was in September, now 5.2.5 came out and the same bug exists...
