Experienced the same issue as in bug #42739 with the current CVS snapshot php5.2-200711130930 even though it's supposed to be fixed in 5.2.5 according to the changelog.
mkdir() fails under safe_mode conditions if the path ends in a slash.

Fixed temporarily by reverting revision of TSRM/tsrm_virtual_cwd.c "Consistent handling of trailing slash".

Running on a completely fresh Debian Sarge install with php5.2-200711130930 from Only change was activation of safe_mode in order to reproduce the problem.

Reproduce code:
  mkdir('myhomefolder/',0770); // does not work
  //mkdir('myhomefolder',0770); // would work

Expected result:
myhomefolder should get created (=no error)

Actual result:
Warning: mkdir(): Unable to access myhomefolder/ in /home/foo/test.php on line 2
