1.5beta5 reports its version number as 1.5beta4.

It actually uses the files in share/afterstep/non-configurable/ when 
~/G/L/A/n-c cannot be found.  The files in n-c/ should be copies of 
look.DEFAULT and feel.DEFAULT.  However, in 1.5beta5, there is no 
look.DEFAULT, and the look in n-c/ is a modified copy of look.DEFAULT.NEW.

Yes, it sounds very much like the config files are not being loaded 
properly.  Does AfterStep give any errors during startup or after?
