unable to copy files new blog template


I am on wp 3.5.1 and using Version 1.6 which was just released of new blog templates.
I renamed my wp-content using this method: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Moving_wp-content_folder

This is the error message that I get when I try to create a new site off of the template site:

File System Error: Unable to create directory /web/sites/mysite.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/200/files. (New Blog Templates - While copying files)

I saw this post from 3 months ago
https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/new-blog-templates-not-copying-files-or-setting-pagepost-ownerships-correctly which says that there was an upgrade to fix the problem, it still doesn't seem to work on my end.

How do I fix?
