Hi Jan

Ethan does not work on AS anymore, so I took care of this.

Basically both of this items were already done in devel branch, so it made 
perfect sense for me to incorporate your patches into stable branch.

I slightly improved your prepos patch, to work similar to devel branch.
so option name is DefaultGeometry instead of Prepos and it supports full 
X geometry format. Like : WxH+X+Y. 
Also I made it so that it will be ignored when command line geometry is 
requested ( USSize/USPosition ).

Let me know if you don't like it.
Also feel free to add your copyright to affected files and send me the patch.

Thanks for your contribution ! Keep it coming :)

I will be releasing new stable some time soon, and for now you can get it 
from the CVS server : 

cvs -d co afterstep-stable

Thanks again.
Sasha Vasko.
