C-v/M-v work for me.

But I can't figure out how to get C-<arrow> to
work in emacs (for arrow = left, right, up, down).
Instead, afterstep appears to interpret these
combinations as virtual desktop commands.

Alexy, do you want to trade .emacs, ~/GNUStep/...
and .X* files, to try and figure out both problems?
