can launch aMule only as root

Hi all,
I did install aMule since xMule is quite heavy and makes my internet connection very slow.
The install was OK, but I can only launch amule as root, it fails when I try with a normal log.

I get the following output :

Initialising aMule
Userhash loaded: 263A3270BC0E4AD8A5B9946FA4F76FB5
*** UDP socket at 4665
*** UDP socket at 4672

and an error window with :
13:04:45: Directory '/home/nicolas/.xMule/Incoming' couldn't be created (error 2: No such file or directory)
13:04:45: Directory '/home/nicolas/.xMule/Temp' couldn't be created (error 2: No such file or directory)

If I create the directory, then I just get the first output..

I had xmule installed but uninstalled as cleanly as possible.
When I launch as root, everythg is OK.

Any clue ?

*** RESOLVED ***

I solved this by deleting the file ~/.emule
