In the stable def for mkdir:

  ; If we're running Unix, MzScheme <371 has a bug
  ; where make-directory* sets the sticky bit.
  ; Thus, we want to use system instead.
Actually, in MzScheme 352, make-directory also sets the sticky bit, so the version currently in stable is buggy for that version of MzScheme:

  arc> (mkdir "foo")
  nil
  arc> ^D
  $ ls -l
  total 0
  drwxr-xr-t 2 cat cat 48 Feb 29 09:49 foo

Also the check in ensure-dir to see if the directory already exists has been taken out going from arc2 -> stable, which means that if the os is unix or macos, you're going to be firing up the shell on every single call to ensure-dir.

Fixed on master branch. Sorry nex-3, I don't develop on stable branch at all, and I'm pretty much just using git as a glorified CVS ^^

Would you be willing to try using stable? It's really not that hard, and it keeps the history so neat.

Will try later, anyhow how to do changes on both stable and master?

It's probably not worth worrying about for this patch, because mkdir is in a different place in stable... I'll worry about that. But for future reference, the original post has a good procedure.
