That directory and several others like them are created by cocoon to do 
its work.  You apparently have some permissions problem, which could be 
caused by a number of scenarios.  If you can, you may just need to make 
sure you give the user running tomcat sufficient privileges on the work
directory (like with chown -R).  Alternatively, you can change the
directories Cocoon uses in web.xml and cocoon.xconf.
