Yes, that's possible, but then I should have been getting errors on
applications, but $HOME should have been getting the right path.

What sounds strange is that the starting path in xterm is what's
supposed to be (/media/mmc3/user), but afterward $HOME becomes /home/user.

BTW, I solved addint at the end of rcS:

mount -o bind /media/mmc3/user /home/user

not sure this is the best way, but at least it works! :)

Btw, it's too late right now (3.10 am here) to do more. Tomorrow I'll
try asking to osso-xterm people.
