If I use "-i USE" with eselect-18.104.22.168_beta4, I get a lot of no such file or directory errors. My /etc/portage/make.profile only contains a parent file. The /etc/portage/make.profile and its content is created with "eselect profile add XX".

It's the only content inside of make.profile

output of euse -i gtk
No existe el fichero o el directorio -> No such file or directory. Moreover, euse command hangs and never ends.
That's because of bug 414961 where support to add ':' as shorthand for the parent directory was added. As noted in that enhancement request, that feature breaks euse.
As of right now, euse has not been updated for that feature enhancement to work correctly.

The following patch should fix euse to support the colon characters in the parent files. Please test.
