	As of now, none of the developers have or have access to *BSD
boxes.  The one developer who made sure 1.6.x worked with *BSD has been
indesposed.  So as it appears, AfterStep previous to 1.7.49 works with
*BSD, and does NOT work with any version after 1.7.49 . 
	The BSD developer might have some time to look into correcting the
problems on *BSD system, but until then consider that the version break
mentioned above is the key to wether it works with *BSD or not.

	Thanks for mentioning the break point, that'll help a great deal!
