Well, I have:
$ ls -al .tangogps/
drwx------    2 root     root            0 Jan  5 08:04 .
drwxr-xr-x   22 root     root            0 Feb 10 10:43 ..
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            1 Jan  5 08:04 geophoto.db
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            1 Dec 20 12:42 poi.db

Two single-byte files, both contains an "S".

It isn't hardcoded and it cannot be. I have changed both
map storage and tracklog storage from the defaults, and this still works
even with 0.9.5.  So it is stored somewhere, or 0.9.5 wouldn't find it. 
Using "find" and "grep" I discovered that
tangogps keeps a stored configuration in:
So it is in a config file, not hardcoded. Perhaps 0.9.5 has a bug and 
cannot create this file when it doesn't already exist? Report that
to the author.

My copy of the file is attached, I hope it helps.

While waiting for a fix, consider hardcoding the path in your yaouh. It 
is python code, and can be edited in a text editor.
