	The 6th patch to 1.7.49 series contains the switch to
UNIX-domain socket code, so if AfterStep breaks for you (or any
*BSD'r) at 1.7.49 patched to 1.7.55; this is the actual problem; otherwise
we'll just have to see what the actual person/developer who looks into the
problem comes up with. :)
	If someone wants to actually track this down and provide a
possible fix, I can make 1.7.49 and the patches available ... I'd put them
back up on the ftp site, but apparently the admins [ subsequent comments
have been censored ] and yadda yadda, we have no space left until they get
[ more censorship ], hopefully the problems will soon be solved.
