I bumped into this issue with a problematic package I mistakenly created, installation failed but some directories were created in the install root. When I tried to reinstall it, it broke when trying to create that same directory it left behind the last time.

A possible fix for this is in my branch createdir.

A bare "except" is usually a bad idea. If we want to ignore EEXIST, we should probably be catching only OSError, and re-raising if the "errno" field" isn't EEXIST. (For instance, we probably *do* want to fail if the operation dies with EPERM, or because some bug made it so filename? was None, or something like that.)

Also this code is still doing the join-with-/ thing, which means it will probably conflict with whatever fix we do for that.

Darn, you're right, I totally missed that.

I've updated the branch. Tested and working for both cases (EEXIST and EPERM (and any other possible errno that should re-raise)).
