safe mode / directories

I created a directory with PHP mkdir (mode 0777). Then I try to
move_ulpoaded_file() to move a file into this directory. I get an error:

Warning: move_uploaded_file(): SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script
whose uid is 1999 is not allowed to access
/home/www/ww4592/html/fs/PHP/Dateien/Bereich_1/NEUER_ORDNER owned by uid 33
in /home/www/ww4592/html/fs/PHP/File.php on line 57

The webspace is at a webhost-company, not on my own server. I think I
understand the restrictions of SAFE MODE, but I do not understand why a
script has another uid than a directory created by the very same script!

Is the error above the "normal" bevaviour if SAFE MODE is on?

If it is: That is a drastic limitation. If I say to a client "I need
webspace with PHP" and I get that SAFE MODE-stuff would it not be right to
say that that is no fully working PHP-Webspace? I mean a webspace that does
not allow a directory to be created and a file moved into it does not really
support PHP -- it's a joke! Any opinions?

Thanks and sorry for my maybe bad English,

Re: safe mode / directories

that's a known php-bug. try to email hoster and ask him to disable
userid check in safe-mode...
