Are you launching the script from a Bash shell? In this case, Bash is already running, so maybe it just assumes the task of being the interpreter. I'm just guessing here, as usual.
If you make a menu item for "eterm" in your window manager, does it still run properly?
Another option is putting those settings in .Xdefaults or as an alias in .bashrc...it saves having additional files floating around.
