	Using AfterStep 1.8.x would be a GoodThing, but this behavior is
not indicitive of something broken in the 1.7.x version you have; meaning,
it should work (but I can't say positively, that was a devel version).
The only other guesses I could make is that you could be using an image
format not supported in your version of AS (beit xpm, png or jpg).
Otherwise, the image might not be in the path AS looks for them, or even
be wrong permissions.  The PixmapPath is in your base.xxbpp file.

	To verify that the WM_NAME is indeed 'Netscape' use xprop or the
Ident AfterStep Module (in menu->Modules->Ident) or my neat 'Window
Properties' menu entry (menu->Windows->Window Properties) on the Netscape
