Pager weirdness(?)

Hello all,

I'm experiencing some strange Pager behaviour with afterstep 1.8.3:

1. Stacked windows are not shown correctly when changing desktops/
   pages. For example, I open two xterms in a page, the second one
   partially obscuring the first. Then, when swithing to another page,
   the pager immediately shows the first one that was opened as being
   on top (without actually raising it).
   This makes it practically impossible to move a window from a
   cluttered page by dragging it out of the pager, since it usually
   grabs the wrong one :-)

2. A middle click on a window in the pager doesn't give it keyboard
   focus (as in previous versions, 1.[0-6]?), but instead moves it
   diagonally towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
   If this is a feature, someone please explain me why :)

I've also tested the above with the newer AS version that comes with
debian-testing/unstable; (1) doesn't seem to happen any more
(or I didn't notice) but (2) persists, which leads me to think that
it's not a bug. In that case, does anyone know how I can get back to the
old behaviour?

TIA for any replies.
