Ok.  Well, that must be look- or feel-dependent.  When I click on the
bottom window decorations with any button, it activates a resize action.

Look and feel is something I haven't yet smoothed out yet.  I suspect I'm
going to have to dig in and figure out how to override Afterstep presets
and define my own look and feel.  None of the presets give me the control I
want.  Circa v1.0, I had all this configured, but it didn't translate well
to the new setup.

Thanks,
