[As-users] .look / frame + tbar question

I'm currently in the process of re-themeing and am just a bit uncertain
as to how things the window frame and titlebar are positioned relative
to one another. Currently when I see a window that looks like the
following (t = title bar, f = window frame).

tttttttt
ffffffff
f      f
f      f
f      f
ffffffff


What I would have thought should happen is to see something like,

ffffffff
fttttttf
f      f
f      f
f      f
ffffffff

Is this actually the way things are supposed to be? My intuition says
that the frame should be the outer most part of the window (hence the
name frame). Things just start looking wierd when I have a NorthWest /
North / North East frame and then position a title bar on top of it.

I've spent the day doing some web trawling, have read both 
http://www.afterstep.org/as20conv.php#look
and the MyFrame.html that ships with Afterstep but they haven't seemed
to answer my questions (more discussing components of the frame +
titlebars).

Any feedback appreciated,

cheers
Andre
