To me, this doesn't look like a os.makedirs() bug, but rather an autofs one (didn't know it was still in use).
I don't like the idea of adding such a kludge (i.e. catching EPERM and checking whether the directory appeared in between).

Could you please provide an strace output of both "os.makedirs()" and "mkdir -p"?
