Did the R1276190214358 directory already exist? If so, it will retain
the permissions it had, and only the thumbs sub-directory within it will
have the new permissions.
Also, is this on a shared hosting server? It could be that a security
restriction in-place is not allowing the permissions to be configured as
the directory is written, and you may have to manually update them with
the chmod() function.
