	AfterStep now builds the menu by default upon startup all the
time, if you are running other processes or have a high load, it might
appear to take more time to start, with this being the reason.  Try the
last patch 07 and see if the fixes to the socket code correct anything

	Looking at the file, first off you have an error in the
(pressumably) look.file you are using -> "AfterStep: error in config: ^D 
in ^D line" <- something is amiss here since the numbers aren't being
input into stderr.  You are also sending erroneaous options to whatever
"wmxmms" is.  I'd say that the socket patch 07 will fix the next error
messages about window errors and such. 
	I'm still betting that the increase in time at start-up is due to
what I stated above.
