Cat poop thread!

One of my cats has decided that the litter box is just fine for peeing, but that the area approximately 2 feet away from the box is the BEST PLACE EVER to poop. We've been using enzyme cleaners to get her smell off of it, but it's not seeming to work. Halp, magical pet intarwebs!

She's been to the vet recently, and other than her bizarre obsessive-compulsive thing (she likes to lick skin off her thigh) in which the medications to stop the problem either don't work or make her a lethargic, unhappy cat, she doesn't seem to have any medical issues. She KNOWS she's doing something wrong when she poops there -- twice, we've caught her at it and even before yelling or anything, she's given us an "oh fuck" look and hidden under the bed, something she certainly doesn't do when she normally poops.
What are we doing wrong? I am fully open to suggestions, the one issue here being that due to our housemate situation, changing the litter box location by more than a few feet would be difficult, and putting the box where she's currently pooping would be impossible (it would completely block the bathroom door).
