I've found the reason.  In my .xinitrc I used to start the tool
root-tail to print some logfile to the root window.  If I comment out
that line, then mod-shift-c works as expected.  I don't know why.  I
also wonder why manually running root-tail from an xterm after xmonad
has started up doesn't cause any trouble.

Regards, Georg
