Some problems I can think of off the top of my head:

1. when the xv image window is shown, afterstep can't seem to decided
what to do with the bottom right hand corner. it constantly moves it
in and out by about a pixel along the diagonal.
2. If you include the 'Title' command in a popup definition, afterstep
crashes and burns.
3. afterstep gives the following error when drawing a frame for resizing
or moving a window:

afterstep has encountered the following problem interacting with X Windows :
      Request: 12,    Error: 8(BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes))
      in resource: 0x400C3D

4. I can't seem to drag and select menu items (ie. press the mouse button,
move down and select item - i have to click, move and click my way through)
5. open office 1.0.2 just plain aborts now. :/
6. Try as I might I can't seem to get any styles attached to my frames. all
i ever get is the default style. what am I doing wrong? here's the relevant
snippet from my look file:

Martin's distress was in contrast to the bitter satisfaction of some
of his fellow marines as they surveyed the scene. "The Iraqis are sick
people and we are the chemotherapy," said Corporal Ryan Dupre. "I am
starting to hate this country. Wait till I get hold of a friggin' Iraqi.
No, I won't get hold of one. I'll just kill him."
