Really strange error message but I guess there was something wrong with you=

Does this persist? It wasn't just a temporary error?

Did you run it as that same user that you removed the config from? Have yo=
ever been running it as user root? In that case, a config file might have=
been stored somewhere else. This is what the Qt documentation say:
There is no universally accepted place for storing application settings und=
Unix. In the examples the settings file will be searched for in the followi=
1. SYSCONF - the default value is INSTALL/etc/settings
Check to see if you can find a qtel file somewhere else, for example=20
using "locate qtel". Remove it and start from scratch to see if you can fix=
the directory listing problem, if not already fixed.
If you are using binaries it could be a compatibility problem. In that case=
you'll have to compile it from source.
