The first step I'd take toward rectifying this would probably be to ask on the
*Enigmail* list, enigmail at mozdev.org. Folks with plenty of Mac OS X development
skills and specific knowledge of Enigmail are there. This really isn't a GnuPG

Second, Note: I am *not* an OS X user, /but/ in Enigmail's Advanced Preferences,
on the Debugging tab, there is an entry for 'Log Directory'. This is usually set
to the location of the user's or system's temp directory, /tmp.  I looks like
this value is undefined for the OP and Enigmail is left ending up trying to
create it on the fall-back default, Desktop. Actually, Enigmail's routine is
returning "", an empty string. Desktop would be the OS default.
