I feel this is a bug. Previous versions of GPG did create the
directory
in user's home directory and copied the conf from the skeleton. Please
submit it to bugzilla if no entry is already there.

I also feel it is a bug - the directory should have specific permissions (0700) and a user just creating one at random may not have secure permissions.
