I'm just experimenting a little bit with Afterstep 1.5 beta 4
on SparcStation (8bit display) with Solaris 2.5.
I have some problems with the placement of icons I don't 
remember to have with AS 1.4 (that's some time ago).

I'm using a Linux Penguin as standard icon. It seems to be a
little bit bigger than the Icon of xemacs or netscape or the
other AS icons. Now the Icons on the desktop are aligned by the
topof the icon. The icon titles that are boxed at the base of
the icon now build steps going up and down. I would like to
align the icons by the title box, how do I do this?

The next problem appears with the pager and icons. I'm using
3 desktops with a virtual size of 2x2. If I now have an icon
(not the window) on the upper left part of desk 0 the title
boxed of the icon also appears on the upper left part of desk
1 & 2. How can I stop the pager from doing so?

At last some small problem that has noting to do with icons:
When starting a modul from an AS menu I get a message (e.g.)
Clean Version 1.5.0 beta 4 should only be executed by AfterStep!
in the X-log. This works with every modul.

Thanks for reading this,
