I had been using database and pager files that were generated from an
early beta of afterstep 2.  I just copied them to the ~/.afterstep
directory.  After I sent my message it ocurred to me to diff the files
in ~/.afterstep with those in /usr/share/afterstep, and there were lots
more differences than I was expecting.  So I copied database and pager
from the current /usr/share/afterstep, modified them slightly, and
restarted the afterstep session and that fixed it.  It also fixed the
problem I had with afterstep looking for feels in ~/GNUstep/L/A/feels.

Unfortunately, I didn't keep the old database and pager files.
