I also use Debian potato and I had the same troubles until I compiled
and installed Afterstep 1.8.8 by hand.

In my experience, you can't expand the Wharf by right click (in Afterstep
1.6) if the tile left on the screen contains a swallowed application like
the pager or a clock.  So just rearrange your icons and let a 'normal'
button be the first tile.

BTW: My Debian 2.2r2 system contains all the libs required to compile
Afterstep 1.8.8. I recommend you to do so (not to mention that you can
use all the good-looking themes from then (and yes,
the site is alive again)).
