I've recently updated to AfterStep 2.00.01. Right away i noticed big 
changes from 1.8.11, namely that all my carefully crafted config files 
were completely ignored and i have to set things up from scratch. It 
seemed that AS now uses ~/.afterstep rather than 
~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep to store configuration data. (Was there a 
particular reason for the switch? I'm not complaining; storing 
configuration in ~/.afterstep makes more sense to me and being a hidden 
directory doesn't needlessly clutter ls listings.)

Anyway, i've noticed an oddity which causes AfterStep to crash. To 
repeat the crash, start with a clean configuration (as in, remove or 
rename ~/.afterstep and restart the window manager). Then do:
     $ cp /usr/share/afterstep/feels/feel.DEFAULT \
       ~/.afterstep/non-configurable/0_feel
     $ $EDITOR ~/.afterstep/non-configurable/0_feel
Comment out the StickyIcons line and save the file. Then restart 
AfterStep. To cause a crash, minimize a window. Click on the minimized 
icon (as to restore the window) and AfterStep dies.

Is there some other setting that i need to look out for in order to 
successfully comment out StickyIcons?
