[As-users] Needing help tracing cause of afterstep crashes

I've been having some issues with Afterstep locking up on start up.  In the default config, afterstep will lock up maybe every 5 startup attempts.  I've since had my .xinitrc clobber the workspace_state file when I start X, which makes it happen maybe once every 20 times I start afterstep.  It still seems to happen pretty often whenever I restart the afterstep session (by doing AfterStep menu->Quit->Restart this session).  I've told afterstep send all the output to a logfile, but there's too much in there to just scan the whole thing.

So, there's my problem...and my question then is, where should I start looking for the cause of this problem?

Oh, I'm running afterstep 2.2.2, and I know I had the same problems on 2.2.1 and 2.2.0, and quite possibly earlier versions (don't remember what version afterstep was on when I first started using it).
