We set the permissions on the parent directory to various settings
including rwxrwxrwx+. Also, we tested this as a domain user with
administrator privileges that was mapped to root (uid 0 & gid 0).

I forgot to mention that I could not recreate this problem using the same
source code and configuration on a Solaris 9 x86 installation. The machine
with the problem is SPARC 64 (a v490).

I will make arrangements to try 3.0.28. The machine is in a live
environment so this might not be quick. I'll take a look at bug 4929 too.
