_With those exact configs_, and a cold restart -- shutdown X, run startx
-- line of pagers clear across the screen. (only the first of which has
the background colour.)

If I start just the pager with those configs (using the menus), I get 4
desktops in one very squinched 64x64 pager.

I've attached the spec file and small makefile patch I'm using; anyone
willing to give it a try?

  AfterStep is a Window Manager for X which started by emulating the
  NEXTSTEP look and feel, but which has been significantly altered
  according to the requests of various users. Many adepts will tell you
  that NEXTSTEP is not only the most visually pleasant interface, but
  also one of the most functional and intuitive out there. AfterStep
  aims to incorporate the advantages of the NEXTSTEP interface, and add
  additional useful features.

  The developers of AfterStep have also worked very hard to ensure
  stability and a small program footprint. Without giving up too many
  features, AfterStep still works nicely in environments where memory is
  at a premium.
