If you have a directory on an NS fileserver  foo': called lisp, but no directory called lisp>fugue.n, then NSCREATEDIRECTORY({foo':}<lisp>fugue.n>sources>) creates a directory called lisp>sources.'
Should either first create lisp>fugue.n> and then create lisp>fugue.n>sources>, or else at least raise an exception.  '
Current behavior is pretty seriously wrong. '

The latest version of NSFILING fixes these two bugs. Attempts to create a directory some of whose intermediate directories do not exist, and attempts to create a directory that already exists, generate BAD FILE NAME errors.'
