It sounds like your whole menu is messed up.  I would either
delete/move the entire ~/G/L/A.  Then start AS with the defaults.
This should copy them to your ~/G/L/A and you can customize them
there.  This may be the case of incompatible ~/G/L/A.  If you have
already tried this, I would then manually go delete all of the
afterstep stuff that gets installed and install it again.  It is worth 
noting that in my experience install can misbehave if you are running
AS while trying to install it.  I have also had problems installing
1.5bX over 1.4.X.
