Default Data restore when you flash new rom?

I like testing new ROMS, but there is something annoying, that maybe can be solved.
Every time I wipe, phone data is erased (that's the logical behaviour) and I have to reinstall all my applications (I do it with android commander which is pretty fast), but the problem is I have to reconfigure all the settings, that takes me a lot of time.
Do you know if there is any way to backup / restore configuration for the apps ? I tried TitaniumBackup, whith the save data option, but does not work.

Backup the contents of the /data/data directory (EVERY FOLDER). Then, when you restore it, it is important to set the correct priviledges (chmod 755 -R *). I think this should be it

Titanium Backup is FC-ing in the middle of its restore progress, something is wrong - app data is not restored . Tried this on CoolBits 1.1 ROM.
Devices: HTC Tattoo > HTC Wildfire > SE Xperia Arc S
