one more bug as i modified site default configuration to be more user
###one line from wharf config file
*Wharf asbutton ASBBlockSlate.xpm Swallow "asbutton" bash -c "if test -f ~/.asbuttonrc -a -r ~/.asbuttonrc;then /packages/run/afterstep-applets/asbutton/bin/asbutton -n 4;else /packages/run/afterstep-applets/asbutton/bin/asbutton -n 4 -f /packages/share/afterstep-applets/asbuttonrc/nymfe;fi"
###ends here

fails with:
afterstep: command from module 'Wharf' is too big (259)
(this probably not afterstep ;)Neoprávněný přístup do paměti (SIGSEGV)

results in no afterstep(autoexec file parsing interrupted) no wharf,
etc, and only some programs loadded(which were earlier then the command)

take it just as reminder it has priority forget until rewriting something
else ;) because there are not much things that can be handled similarly
right now and each user will probably want own wharf configuration.
it's just for people who want to try afterstep and they would not probably
have anything configured.

and it is from stable source AfterStep version 1.8.11 so it might be
already fixed in devel or elsewhere. i don't know.
