Spool file, database tables etc.. locations are current set to var/local . This can be problematic and cause etorrent to crash / fail to start if the user does not have the correct permissions to write in these directories

Better would be something like ~/.etorrent

Also etorrent seems not to generate the directories referred to if they do not already exist. It seems to fail to start. It should either display a warning that they don't exist, prompt the user that they don't and ask to create them for the user, or just make them directly if they do not.

Some time ago, this suggestion was sent into 'master'. We now refer to an example where it is clear that the data directory lives under a user, rather than under /var/spool in general.
