I am also having a problem with creating sub folders - I choose to create sub folder from

Assuming you are adding sub-folders from the Shared Data -> Data Libraries view ( and
not the Admin - Manage data libraries view ), this may be a result of permissions that
have been placed on the library or parent folder in which you are adding sub-folders. The
behavior you see could be a bug, but if so, I'll need some help tracking it down. Can
you confirm from what view you are adding hte sub-folders, and what the permissions are on
the parent folder and library?
