In what situation is the backspace key not working.  By the toolbar, I'll
assume you mean the WinList.  The grey bar across the top that tells you
what windows you have open.  As far as it goes, the best way to learn how
to configure it would probably me to 'man WinList' and go from there.  The
file you will be editing is ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/winlist
