How do I set up afterstep for xinerama? I have been using afterstep for
years (love the configurability) and have recently added a second video
card to my PC running Linux. Now, when I log in, I get two aftersteps
running, one on each screen. I can pop windows up on either screen but
cannot change mouse or keyboard focus.

twm works fine. The keyboard focus switches to where the new window pops
up. What do I have to do with afterstep? Do I have to change something
in my .xesession?
