I'm afraid this is way past me. If I understand you correctly you are booting from the memory card? Claws normaly installs itself to /usr/bin IIRC and puts its config into /home/user/.claws. Where yours are  don't know. I might check for multiple files where there should be just one? When you say there are no errors when starting Claws from xterm, does anything output or do you simply get a command prompt? Good luck.
