I've noticed that the "Save Current Settings" in Potato's Eterm version
is horribly broken, but haven't had time to figure out why it is on my
system.  It saves config files that completely trash my keyboard
mappings and then Eterm doesn't work, so I end up manually hacking away
at MAIN until it's right again.

In your case the whole package seems broken.  Have you attempted a
complete removal of the Eterm package with 'apt-get remove --purge
Eterm' and a re-install to see if the broken paths will work?

Just a thought...
