This is what Claws currently does by default. The socket is 
/tmp/claws-mail-${UID} (at least it is on my Linux test system).
Specifying an alternate config directory causes Claws to put the socket
in the specified config directory instead of /tmp. Thus the OP's
problem with FAT and mine with EncFS.

This would work, and it would require a very minimal change to the
claws_get_socket_name function. I'll poke at it a bit and see what I
can work up.
