Hmm... probably is a bug in PHP.  My guess: Instead of just passing
parameters on to the equivalent C library function of the same name,
they implemented it using the low level system call open(2), and they
forgot to || in the O_CREAT flag.

If you really want to track this down: it's easy enough to check using
strace, though harder while it's in the apache module.  Can you get it
exhibit this behavior calling the php command line interpreter?
