[OS X TeX] can't write on log file error

I'm trying to use TeXShop on a newly created user account on my G4  
Powerbook running 10.4.6, and I'm having a problem.  Every time I try  
to typeset a LaTeX document imported from another user account I get  
a message that says "I can't write on the file 'xxx.log'," where  
'xxx' is the document name.  This happens even if I cut and paste the  
content of an imported document into a new document.  If I start with  
a document created entirely in the new user account, typesetting goes  
off without a hitch.  Ideas?
