[Users] Can't write file

I just replaced Ubuntu with Linux Mint.  After doing the install, I
restored all my $HOME files from backup.  Now claws-mail is giving me
continual messages saying "Can't write file."  The relevant lines from the
log show:

I noticed that I was running v3.8.0 under Ubuntu and am now running 3.8.1
under Linux Mint.  I tried reinstalling.  I tried looking for claws-mail
directories or files with incorrect permissions, username or groupname, to
no avail.

Any suggestions?
