OK, I'm officially baffled.

That directory (.emacs.d) is empty on my system. If I delete the directory and launch Aquamacs, the directory gets recreated, but I never actually see the pipe file inside, and the mod DTM on the directory never changes (which I think it would, if the pipefile were created even momentarily).

How do you launch Aquamacs? I either launch it as a Startup Item, or during tests like these, from the Dock.
