It doesn't look like this is something that afterstep can do.  It
looks like it's dtsession that's sticking around (do a "ps aux" after
you quit afterstep)  If that's the case, then you you need to convince
dtsession to surrender the login process to afterstep.

Maybe bind a key in afterstep (or menu button, or wharf button, or
whatever) to "killall -9 dtsession"
