This definitely looks like the problem.  Can you take a look at those
files and directories and see if there are any ownership or modal
problems that could prevent your user from being able to write or
delete files from there?  Something owned as root, perhaps?

Worst case, you could delete the
~/.beagle/Indexes/IndexingServiceIndex directory entirely.  That would
fix the permissions problem, but you would lose any previously-indexed
web pages.  (And unlike other backends which could just recrawl the
data, these will be permanently lost unless you navigate back to that
web page.)
