List of Features?

Ok, it seems several others have done this; so I will too.  I have
upgraded to 1.4.55n6 via rpm for RedHat Linux x86.  I got the rpm from 
the-site url often cited on this mailing list.  Here is my list of
features I am struggling with:

1.  BorderWidth does not appear to work.  I have set the following
line in my ~/G/L/A/database file: 'Style "maillog" NoTitle, Sticky,
WindowListSkip, NoHandles, NoFocus, BorderWidth 0'. Unfortunately this
does not appear to remove the window border.  I have also set this to
100 with no noticeable affect.

2.  Where is the documentation on differences to the wharf file?  I
had some nice stuff setup in my warf; particularly having a button bar 
horizontal instead of verticle.  I did this with WharfColumns set to
the number of buttons I had defined for the Wharf.  This no longer
works. Also, the order of all my buttons has been reversed.  Finally,
when I click on the swallowed xload, I no longer get top. The lines I
used for that are:
*Wharf2 asload nil  MaxSwallow "xload" xload -bg lightsteelblue &
*Wharf2 asload nil  Exec "" xterm -fg cyan -bg gray25 -ut -T top -e top &

I have a couple of placed that I did this kind of thing, but it no
longer works.

3. When I use the window shade, the window title is always sticky.  I
have the StubbornIcons StubbornPlacement StubbornIconPlacement all set 
within my individual feels file, but afterstep does not seem to treat
window shades as icons.  As a side note, I have experienced
disappearing windows when using the shade.  I have not run 1.4.55n6
long enough to see if it happens with this version.

This is just my gripe list.  Thanks for letting me complain.
