It's true that I haven't been putting things in README.new_options, 
making it hard to find what's new.  I've attached an updated copy of the 
post-1.7.0 part of README.new_options to this email.  Note that the 
README just mentions the options - use the man pages for more 
information.

In particular, pay close attention to the new start menu handling, else 
you may be in for some surprises. :)

Also, the AfterStep menus and titlebars, and Wharf buttons may be 
translucent (ie, transparent and tinted).  This is great fun with Eterm, 
making an all-translucent desktop.

GNOME?  What's that? :)

Hmm, I haven't had this happen to me, and I set my (tcsh) prompt to do 
the same thing.  I use stock rxvt, not aterm, however.
