[wmii] 20071003 snapshot config question

i'm still trying to port my settings from 3.1; i have only two outstanding
issues. any help would be greatly appreciated; so far banging my head has only
broadened the bruise ...

1) WMII_TERM=x-terminal-emulator

i *really want to change this ... what follows is what fails to work for me -
you should be able to decipher what i'm actually trying to achieve:

WMII_TERM="xterm -bg black -fg white -ls -vb -sb -rightbar -s -sl 1000 -fn fixed
-fb fixed"

i've tried different quoting methods (and none at all) to no avail. what
braindead thing am i doing wrong?

2) fn status { echo -n `{uptime | sed 's/.*://; s/,//g'} '|' `{date} }

same idea as #1; if you spot the stupidity, please let me know how to correct it:

fn status {
    load=`uptime | sed 's/.*://; s/,//g'`
    export=`df -h /export|awk 'END {print "Export: "$3"/"$1"/"$4}'`
    root=`df -h /|awk 'END {print "Root: "$3"/"$1"/"$4}'`
    status="`date` || `acpi` || $root || $export ||$load"
    echo -n $status

this particular item prevents wmii from starting correctly (well, it starts but
i have no hotkeys or anything else - no method of starting apps).

i have the feeling that these issues have mostly to do with my lack of sleep
than with any oddity in the configuration syntax, but i am certainly stuck at
this point. again, any (constructive) help is appreciated. :)
