Segmentation Fault

When I try to run the compiled version of Afterstep using RedHat v. 5.2,
the AfterStep executable reports first the color depth and then an error
saying, "Segmentation Fault."

AfterStep seems to compile without complaint.

I eliminated Xclients, ~/.xinitrc, /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, e.t.c and all
other startup scripts. I am starting X "bare-bones" using with the
"startx" command. I then start a window manager from there. For example,
running "twm &" from the X window terminal runs fine.

Also, I completely removed RedHat's method for starting X Windows. I am
running the "industry standard" method. Has this happened to anyone else
or does anyone have an idea what could be happening? Anything that could
help would be really appreciated.
