Aterm catching console messages

Last night I decide to set up aterm to catch my console messages instead
of using the normal xconsole.  It works as long as I close xconsole... and
only one aterm can catch the console messages at a time.  This is fine.
However, the problem I have is that I cannot get it to startup 
automatically.  This is what I have done:

I like to log into the same settings everytime, hence I don't use
the .workspace feature which starts up whatever I left open when I
logged out.  In my autoexec, I replaced calling .workspace with
.workspace.PERMANENT.  In this file I replaced the xconsole with aterm
-C, but when I log in... the aterm -C is never executed.  Instead I still
get a default white xconsole.  

Anyone know why this would be?  (I am using Afterstep 1.6.10-1 and aterm
