A bug in PERL or a bug in the server?by DaWolf (Curate)

DaWolf has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi again, folks.
I've made a script to automate the task of creating several subdirectories on the server. It looks into a txt file and for each line in there it creates the subdirectory named after the text of the line.
The command I've used to create it: chmod $dirN,0777;
Well, I've tested with only two lines/subdirectories to avoid making any "damage" to the server.
It created the two subdirectories, but the server - linux, of course ;) - doesn't recognizes the first one. I can't get into it, chmod it, delete it, rename it, anything at all... The second created directory was allright, I've even deleted it without any problems.
There aren't any differences between the name of the directorys - they're both "letters-only".
Does anyone have any ideas of what's happening here?
