[syslog-ng] create_dirs(yes) doesn't actually create directories

[root at xxxxx ~]# syslog-ng --version
syslog-ng 1.6.9

global options from syslog-ng.conf:

options {
  sync (0);
  time_reopen (10);
  log_fifo_size (1000);
  long_hostnames (off);
  use_dns (yes);
  use_fqdn (no);
  create_dirs (yes);
  keep_hostname (yes);

Here's three lines from the config, the /var/log/services directory
exists, but the network dir doesn't get created. From what I
understand of the reference manual.. create_dirs(yes) *should* create
them, yes? I have about 30 directories, and I'd rather not create them
by hand. :)

Permissions on all directories above /var/log/services are correct. (rwxr-x-r-x)

Any insight would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
