Is the concept of using trees so unfamiliar to you? You have tried to create
when only   c=baz,d=blah    exists.   This is like trying to
     mkdir /usr/local/custom/test
when only   /usr/local      exists. You have to create the intermediate
levels of the tree before you can add new leaves at the bottom.
