Ok, 
That is about the FUNNIEST thing I have ever heard.
Possibly an exploit..or maybe someone has access to your machine??
I dont see how Afterstep/RedHat could bring that upon itslef...
But, then again, Stranger things Have happened.

As far as Error Messages...XcdRoast once told me "Some Error Has Occured"
That is a lot worse than "heyho!" cuz you can at least laugh when you read
heyho! :>

Good luck figuring that one out.
