AfterStep 1.6.6 is great, but...

I have just installed AfterStep 1.6.6, and I love it.  The new README
really helped me upgrdae from my old version (I was having problems
earlier).  The only thing is that I still can't get some things to work,
so I have a few questions.  I tried looking everywhere for documentation
on my problems, but I couldn't find any.  So, if it is covered somewhere,
I apologize and will gladly accept a reference to the doc.

1.  How do I get only ONE pager?  I had this setup with the older version
(1.4), but I keep getting 4 pagers now.  If I call 'pager 0 0', it gives
only one pager but it is in a window big enough for 4 pagers.

2.  How do I specify the location if I don't swallow the pager in the
wharf?  I tried playing with the position in file 'pager', but I get
unpredictable results.  It does move the position, but not in a
predictable manner.

3.  I am having probs with clear pixmaps in the wharf.  The Transparent
pixmap is not completely transparent, but it is partially and works great.
However, when I try to use a pixmap that is completely clear it doesn't

4.  Postit doesn't swallow correctly as it did before.  The wharf does
swallow it, but it doesn't look contained within a wharf button.  It looks
like a separate entity.  In the old version, when I swallowed it, it put
the postit pixmap within the button.  Now it is the button itself. (I am
not sure if I am being clear here) 

5.  I can't get the WindowMaker app wmmon to be swallowed.  Has anyone had
success with this?  (wmppp swallows just find)

I appreciate any help anyone can give me...

Thank you,
