This is a known bug, already reported here:

A temporary fix in your particular typo3-installation is in my comment
to the bug report.

You could have setups where TYPO3 writes files that you can also
manipulate with FTP. Just put your webserver-user (wwwrun) in the same
group as the FTP-user. Then tell TYPO3:

$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['createGroup'] = '<groupname>';

Also make sure your FTP-server is creating files with umask "002", which
will be writeable by the group.
