I think this is occurring because both Gnome and AfterStep are managing
your session.  You can either turn off session-managing in the Gnome Setup

Exec    "I"     sh ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/.workspace_state &

from your autoexec file in you AfterStep directory

As for gnome not shutting down, you should log out from Gnome and not from

Hope this helps,
