You mast not use the same name for different applications

use :
*Wharf asload2-Colargol - Swallow "asload2" ssh -f c /usr/X11R6/bin/asload
-shape -led green&

in the second line. Otherwise Wharf will think that you made mistake and will
swallow only one asload. This is actually a feature, as you can swallow an app
into the folder. Here is example from my own config:

*Wharf ascd 	- 		Swallow "ascd" ascd -showtitle &
*Wharf ascd	-               Folder	
    *Wharf wmmixer 	- 		Swallow "wmmixer" wmmixer -s -l cyan4 &
*Wharf ~Folder
