What are the permissions and ownership on the directory the uploads go
in? If its group is 'ftpuploadgroup' and has group write permissions
than any member of that group can rename files in that directory. If a
user creates a directory, then that will have rwxr-xr-x permissions so
they won't be able to rename files within that directory.
