Re: [As-users] Strange Apereance on FC8

I'm having some issues with F8 as well:

"Restart Session" causes AS to exit to gdm or terminal.

Pager doesn't seem to stack desktops vertically; it only works 

And an odd issues that seems to come and go: Wharf doesn't seem to 
remember where it needs to stay.  Or perhaps it gets pushed out of the 
way by WinList; i.e., When Wharf position is set to +0+0, it's stull 
pushed-down by WinList.  Stopping and Restarting the Wharf module will 
position it correctly, but it won't survive a Restart/Exit, even with an 
"Update All".  I even logged-in as root, deleted the 
"~/.afterstep/non-configurable/workspace_state", and logged back in as 
user with no suceess.

Can anyone verify these behaviors on F8?
