This one's interesting.  The feel files distributed with AfterStep are 
wrong! :)

The code works like the man page says it does, not like the feel 
apparently expects it to.

"Desk 0" takes you to desk 0 (this is coincidence; the result of this 
binding is actually undefined)

"Desk 1" takes you to your current desk + 1
"Desk 2" takes you to your current desk + 2

Try changing these lines to:

# shift + control + arrow = change desktop
Key Left        A       SC      Desk 0 0
Key Right       A       SC      Desk 0 1
Key Up          A       SC      Desk 0 2
Key Down        A       SC      Desk 0 3
