Found the erroneous commit after lots of git-bisect'ing. Unfortunately 
it is a pull from svn, but from there it should be fairly easy to find:

commit 651d5a89c59c107c05e789358624058e16af1b66
Author: Gerald Carter <jerry at samba.org>

    r21889: * Pull from SAMBA-3_0_25 svn r21888
    * Set version to 3.0.25pre2

Also one of the bad revisions between 3.0.25pre1 and 3.0.25pre2 prints 
out the following warning when trying to create "level2" inside of the 
existing "level1":
NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_COLLISION making remote directory \level1level2

Also, when you investigate the problem please keep in mind that the bug 
might affect more than the folder-creation use-case. Namely, gollem 
cannot delete subfolders with the affected samba versions.
