thanks for clearing that up for me.  I've got something weird that
could be an afterstep source configuration issue:

When I quit afterstep using the "Quit->Exit" choice, any change I've
made to the look & feel is apparently saved somewhere, as when I start
up X/afterstart again, the look & feel is as it was when I Exited.
However, I can't seem to be able to figure out how to get the windows
to come back up the way they were-- the configure guide I've read says
this is saved into a file called .windows, but looking at the source,
I see in include/configure.h:

#define AFTER_SAVE      "~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/.workspace_state"

and I've also commented out NO_SAVEWINDOWS and rebuilt:

 /*#define NO_SAVEWINDOWS*/

...yet when I quit AfterStep .workspace_state isn't created, or
changed if it's there as an empty file.  And there appears to be no
.windows file either (I have a feeling .workspace_state replaced
.windows at some point?)

any clues?  thanks.
