 If I'm right mod_ruby run with $SAFE = 1. At this level you can't create a
 directory if the variable is tainted.

 All environmental variables are tainted, except for ENV["PATH"]

 ENV["PATH"] is tainted if one directory has a component with the mode 002
 (i.e. others has write permission), or if $SAFE >= 3
