Safe_mode interrupts login-image plugin?

Hi there

Just installed the plugin-image but when uploading an image i get a lot of errors. I think it has something to do with php safe_mode turned on, but my host cannot turn it of.

The first part of my error is;

Warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 1272 is not allowed to access /var/www/ owned by uid 503 in /var/www/ on line 137
There was an error uploading the file, please try again.

Any clever ideas?
