See if you explicitely set DISPLAY environment from any of shell rc 
scripts. AfterStep sets proper DISPLAY depending on screen number ( at 
least it should and does for me ) but as shell scripts are run after AS 
starts apps - the may override it with default screen 0 value.

also to avoid confusion we use term "screen" not "desk" while refering 
to multihead setup.
