All folders created through wordpress media uploader are owned by the apache user, thus denying all access regardless of permissions

Experienced the same issue documented here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/253778?replies=15.
Apache user takes ownership and denies write access regardless of 0755 or 0777 permissions.
I had to turn off file archiving by year/month to avoid creation of folders from wordpress because anything generated from wordpress is owned by the apache user.
I've not seen this bug anywhere but on the mediatemple (dv) server that I'm working with. Possibly server configuration error?
