```A slightly improved version
(thanks to Mr.Ewenchik) :

In[1]:=myPartitions[li_List /; VectorQ[li] && Length[li]>0]:=
Module[{n, maxi, ok, mySort},
n = Length[li];
maxi = FromDigits[Rest@(Table[{0,k},{k,1,n}]//Flatten),n+1];
ok[numbers_List] := Last[numbers] != 0 && And@@
(Count[numbers,#] == 1& /@ Range[n]);
mySort[numbers_List] := (Sort /@ Split[numbers,
#1 != 0 && #2 != 0 && #1 != #2 &])//
Sort // DeleteCases[#,{0}]&;
Union[mySort /@ Select[IntegerDigits[#, n+1]& /@
];

In[2]:=myPartitions[{a,b,c,d,e}]//Timing

Out[2]={74.75 Second,{{{a,b,c,d,e}},{{a},{b,c,d,e}},{{b},{a,c,d,e}},
