Issue 97: xmonad stops responding to keyboard input after running xscreensaver

New issue report by byorgey:
What steps will reproduce the problem?

I am not entirely sure how to reproduce it reliably -- it only seems to
happen if the screensaver is running for a while.

1. lock the screen with xscreensaver/let computer sit idle for a
while/close laptop lid. (?)
2. unlock screen.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

xmonad no longer responds to keyboard input.  I can still switch to a
virtual terminal with Ctrl-Alt-F1, though.  xmonad is definitely still
running, and the mouse still works.  Focus still follows the mouse and
applications seem to respond to keyboard input.  It seems that opening a
new window causes xmonad to start responding to keyboard input again.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

latest darcs, on Ubuntu gutsy.
