As far as I see the value of the ServerRelativeUrl parameter in #2 and #3 is not correct. See the examples on MSDN you reffered to. In #2 it is simply the folder name, in #3 the leading slash is missing. Should be '/Shared Documents/new folder created' instead, the same value yuo use in the working #1. I suggest you to use Fiddler or another network ...

The following JavaScript example demonstrates that approach: function ...

The problem is, it does it for all libraries on the page. But maybe this will get you in the right direction: RootFolder=/PATH/TO/Shared Documents/FOLDER NAME
