Okay I just blew away my ~/.ut2003 directory (and everything below it.)

Now I can connect via xqf launcing :)

Only the game did not set up my newly created ~/.ut2003 with the correct 
defaults as the only button on the keyboard that works is the ~ (at 
least I can quit the game from the console)

I went fishing in the /usr/local/games/ut2003/System directory and found 
two(2) default ini's:
DefUser.ini  Default.ini

I copied:
 /usr/local/games/ut2003/System/DefUser.ini to ~/.ut2003/System/User.ini
 /usr/local/games/ut2003/System/Default.ini to ~/.ut2003/System/UT2003.ini

and now all works good :)

Isn't the game supposed to send these files to a newly created home 
directory automatically?

all is well that ends well :)
