	When you create a ~/G/L/A/looks (or feels or start) directory,
AfterStep no longer looks in the share for these things .. thus leading
one to think all their stuff is missing.  This no longer happens in the
development version due to a new mechanism called an '.include' file which
can be put in a start/ directory and then list other directories to
include in the menu at that given point.  So, if you are using the stable
version; all of you start menu (which includes the backgrounds & looks &
feels directories) must be in the ~/G/L/A/ tree.   man afterstep and refer
to the FILES section for further clarification.
