|Hmmmm.  That's pretty much what I have and it works fine here.  Try
|placing an ampersand ('&') after the call to ical; so that the line looks
|as follows:
|Exec "I" ical &
|
|And, just where is your autoexec file?  (And, by any chance, is it named
|Autoexec?  [The initial 'a' should not be upper case.])  It should be in
|~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/autoexec.
|
|Hope that helps somehow.
