I'm sorry for not replying sooner but I've not had time to get back to this 
problem until recently.  

Thanks for the suggestions, but unfortunately none of them have fixed the 
problem.  It persists with or without preemptive scheduling under linux 
2.6.2, and no matter how I try I cannot get it to happen with 2.4.21.  
Everything but the kernel is the same otherwise (I'm assuming that the 
different modutils for 2.6 don't have anything to do with it). Same X, same 
(although relinked) NVidia driver.  There's nothing unusual in any of the 
usual places (~/.Afterstep-errors, .xsession-errors, etc). and X still 
responds so I can switch to a console screen to look in these places while 
Afterstep is hung.  Anyway, I'm not really sure, short of putting some 
debugging stuff in Afterstep itself, how to approach debugging this problem.  
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Again, thanks for the suggestions, I truly appreciate them.  I'll post if I 
make any progress.
