	I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say here.  Check
into the database entry you have for your Wharf, and make the appropriate
additions/substitutions/deletions in conjunction with the man page for
afterstep.  Look into AvoidCover/AllowCover & Layer &
StaysOnTop/StaysPut/StaysOnBack etc.

! I also use the look.Nextish which is supposed to give gray title bars to
! nonfocused windows but gives turqouise instead. In the MyStyle
! "gray1_gradient_colors" the BackGradient colors are #a0a2a1 #606261 and AS
! interprets them as #00a2a1 #006261 which give a turquoise gradient so it
! is dropping the r of rgb.

	Make sure you are using the latest look.Nextish that came with the
1.7.75 release - all looks are typically updated with each new snapshot to
be fully compatible with new/changed features.  I made all the look
changes, and can verify that the look.Nextish works.
	Possible a video problem - 8bpp or color-corection etc.  Open
either a color.tcl or xcolorsel and verify you can see this color

! I also use autoraise but the window in focus doesn't always autoraise. If
! you focus another window and then go back it will autoraise.

	Unfortunately, the AutoRaise function in the feel is a neglected
function - any takers?  You currently need to pass the mouse over/in the
Title area for the window to acquire focus.  This is possibly the reason
it works on the second pass - you have tagged this area.
