Missing HD Space? Bug?

I'm not sure if I detected a bug in something or what.  It could be
countless different AfterStep related things.  I've been noticing lately
that I am missing a LOT of harddrive space and have nothing to account for
it, so I did a 'du' and say that my ~/G/L/A was using 354megs!  I decided
to investigate, and my search turned up this:

~/G/L/A/non-configurable/0_background.134513992x134516344.as.xpm

The size of this xpm?  338megs!  Needless to say my machine is much
happier now that it's not at 97% capacity.  Anyone know what might have
caused this file to be created?  I didn't bother to xv it before I deleted
it because I wasn't about to kill my system by loading a 338meg xpm.
