See: Help -> Diagnose menu for troubleshooting.

No, it won't be.  It runs fine from elsewhere.

Sure (even though I don't know what "epa" things are), how would such a folder be related?  Is "epa" something that specializes on opening .gpg files?

If a file exists, but cannot be read, you may simply not have read permission.  That sort of thing doesn't have much to do with Aquamacs...

Hope that helps.
