Drastic solution: rm -fr ~/GNUstep
    This destroys all your settings, but AfterStep will rebuild a default
    set-up next time it starts.

Less drastic solution: delete or rename the directory ~/G/L/A/start, 
                       delete the file ~/G/L/A/non-configurable/startmenu
                       start AfterStep

Changing the start tree is only the first part of updating a menu, you then
have to "update menu" to write these changes to the startmenu file, which is
what AfterStep actually uses.  Deleting the startmenu file forces an update.
