Browsing samba-technical, I remeber the problem with creating directory with
missing directories in path. I.e. mkdir -p //samba/foo/bar/com fails if
``bar'' does not exists. I hit it when installing off SAMBA share (2.0.7)

Here it seems that one nice person analysed the problem. May be, it helps. The
mentioned patch is for Cygwin setup.exe problem, not for SAMBA.
