Thanks for the work around Don.  Its nice to have a great window
manager like AfterStep but its even nicer when everything is working (in
some fashion or another.)  For your information 
*WharfWithdrawStyle is in the developement version of Wharf.  I have 
copied and pasted the blurb about *WWS below.  It does work as stated
in the following;

*****From the>documentation->developement->Wharf page******

*WharfWithdrawStyle style
    Specifies the circumstances under which button 3 should cause the
Wharf to withdraw to a corner. If style is 0, button 3 will do
    nothing. If style is 1 (the default), a click on any button in the
toplevel bar will cause Wharf to withdraw to the nearest corner. If
    style is 2, a click on either the first or the last button in the
toplevel bar will cause the withdrawal. The undocumented NoWithdraw
    option, which does much the same thing, is deprecated - use
WithdrawStyle instead. 

Be sure that you put *WWS in the "feel" config file(s) and not the
wharf(s) config file.

Thanks again for the suggestion.
