Thanks Jeff.  I'm now getting confused with the "start" menu.
I can see where most of the files call things up, but I don't follow the
.include file.  As an example, in
/usr/local/share/afterstep/start/0_Applications/Network the .include file

SmallMiniPixmap         large/NetworkedGlobe

Category                        "Network"

The first line makes sense, that's the picture on the menu.  But how does
Category work - it's obviously finding stuff somewhere, but I don't know
