With the default feel, you should be able to right click on the bottom 
bar to move the window.

Also, investigate the SmartPlacement and RandomPlacement feel options.
>From the afterstep man page:

RandomPlacement
 Specifies that windows which would normally require
 user intervention for placement be automagically
 placed in ever-so-slightly random locations.

SmartPlacement
 Specifies that windows be placed in areas that no
 other windows occupy, otherwise user intervention
 becomes required for placement.  Have fun, try
 specifying both. :-)

... if neither are specified, or SmartPlacement can't place the window 
and RandomPlacement isn't specified, AfterStep falls back to asking the 
user to manually place the window.
