Doug, thanks for the idea, but I did try that. In fact, I got ahold of a machine
that had never had AfterStep, installed this version (1.5b4) from the RPM, and
created a brand new user. Same problem. Feels do not show up -- the contents of
the backgrounds dir show up instead. Everything else works fine.

Hmm. What is odd is that nobody seems to have noticed this. I'm thinking it's a
packaging error. Anybody else installed the beta via RPM?
