You will need to edit you database file. Change the lines that mention
said app, so that the NoTitle, and NoHandles options are removed. On a
side note what does xconsole do? The only thing it has ever done "for me"
is turn a segment of my screen yellow. This may not be the right place to
ask but as ipfreak brought it up, I thought I'd ask. 

I was also wondering. I have "just now" (not yesterday, when I upgraded)
discovered that:
desktop 0	pic1
desktop 1	pic2
desktop 2	pic-originalbg
desktop 3	pic-originalbg

When I switch desktops I need to first switch to desk 2 or 3 if I want the
desk to have the correct picture. Which file did I screw? asetroot or

The last question you can ignore for now if you like I'm just tired. 

A question on "shaped" title bars. I remember some one asking a month or
so ago but I forgot the response. Is it because it would be to difficult
(time consuming; etc.) to code? Or is it some other reason? I don't want
them. I was just reading the new FAQ and stumbled across a blunt answer to
an un-asked question. 

Thank you for your time and for the wonderful AfterStep.
