Re: Serious Aterm/Afterstep problem

You can try this.

Left click on the desktop. Select Quit->Restart this session.

This will refresh your current session but all your windows will be placed 
on the top leftmost of your virtual page. You should then be able to regain 
your focus.

Once a while AS will freeze, thus, losing its focus for no apparent reason. 
Restarting your session ought to fix this. BTW, I'm running a self-compiled 
AS 1.6.10 on SunOS 4.1.4

Hope this helps.
