Some quick remarks on your converted suite: You have 85 entries. The original (like Chapter 1 of the book) has 81 items where items 14 and 15 are vectors holding two integrals each, item 30 again holds two integrals, and item 48 holds three integrals. This makes a total of 86 integrals.
Derive's #e seems to have been converted to %w (there is no %e in your suite).
