Yes, I have the same behaviour, with the slight difference that my
pager always stays in an own window. :) This didn't happen with

My line in the wharf-config looks like this:
  *Wharf Pager - Swallow "Pager" /usr/users/tkcld/as1.6/bin/Pager 0 0

What I also noticed is that, AS somehow doesn't recognize the correct
screendepth. It says 24bit, although I'm pretty sure I only have 16bit.
Since I switch from 8bit->16bit and from AS1.5->AS1.6 at the same time,
I don't know what caused this behaviour. I will install 1.5b6 later
and try it out - if I find the time.. *darn real life projects :)*
