Re: big problems running AfterStep-1.7.164 on DU 6.0D

An update:

I recompiled w/ the --enable-gdb option, but this basically disabled what
little functionality I had before.  I couldn't even type to the one xterm that
starts up.  I do, however, have a core dump i can send you if you want.  Would
this be remotely helpful?

I have also happened upon a possible cause for the problems I am experiencing.
It may be that afterstep is confused by the functioning of DU's keyboard and
mouse.  Interestingly enough, if I turn caps lock on, the root window *will*
register mouseclicks, but only as the middle button, thus bringing up a window

Next chance I get, i am going to recompile again with --enable-gdb, and tell
.autoexec to start multiple xterms.  maybe one of them will work.  If not, i
will log in remotely and redirect to my tty and try to get a backtrace.
