big problems running AfterStep-1.7.164 on DU 6.0D

After a long and hard fought battle, I have built AfterStep on digital
unix 6.0D.  However, when it runs, winlist and pager crash almost
immediately, and none of the windows (root or otherwise) respond to any
mouse clicks.  Wharf also does not respond to any mouse clicks, but it at
least doesn't crash.  

If I restart any of the modules from the one shell that starts up, they
crash again with a segmentation fault.

I am using 8 bit video hardware if that makes any difference.  

Has post 1.4 afterstep ever been used successfully on a digital unix
box?  Is my issue the result of an incorrectly configured binary or does
afterstep simply not coexist with DU?

Thanks for all your help,
Mark Logan
