Mmm ... this a result of a command like

                mkdir dir -m code

-m code set the permission on the new created directory to "code".

What happens if mkdir() do not recognize the "-m" switch?
It create three directory:

                dir, -m, code !!!!

Oh, UNIX ...

Sorry, the muLinux mkdir() is not complete.
