A couple of weird bugs in 1.8.11

I've hit a couple of really weird bugs in AS. I've checked the list 
archives and haven't found any mention of them. Sorry if I missed them.

System Info:
Linux RedHat 7.1
2.4.21 kernel (custom compiled)
XFree86 4.0.2
AfterStep 1.8.11 (custom compiled w/different looks and feels enabled)
Gnome 1.2


1.. This one is nasty. AS doesn't like tab characters (\t) in Popup Title 
fields. In fact, it doesn't like them so much that AS will segfault and 
dump core.

To reproduce:
In the file /usr/local/share/afterstep/feel.ICCCM there is the following:

[...]

Popup "Window"
        Title           "This window :"
 MiniPixmap "mini-menu.xpm"

[...]

Change the spaces in "This window :" to tab characters and load the feel
file. AS will segfault and die. Attempts to start AS will continue to fail
until you remove ~/G/L/A/non-configurable/*feel*.


2.. The XLOCK form has a minor bug that messes up the first line of 
buttons - BUT - when you fix that, the first entry in the list (ant) shows 
up as random characters.
