Its a regression. We put a fix in to fix something, and it looks like it
isnt backwards compatible enough without saying 'ignore minor whinings we
get from the far end'. This does need looking at, probably by me, since I
was the one who made the changes. sorry.

As to why we dont look to see if a directory exists before creating it, see
the past messages about not being able to read DOS file systems and the like
properly; always creating directories works around that.
