Issue 105: Tabs become managed windows upon xmonad restart on 
multi-screen setups

New issue report by lit... at hethrael.com:
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Have a tabbed workspace visible on one screen of a multi-screen setup.
2. Focus a window in the other screen.
3. Restart xmonad (press Mod+Q).

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Nothing visible should change. Instead, the tabs become managed windows in
the focused workspace (attachment 1).

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.5 on Ubuntu Gutsy, GHC 6.6.

Please provide any additional information below.
Creating or destroying a window in the tabbed workspace fixes the problem,
as does pressing Mod+Shift+Space. Closing one of the tab windows quits
xmonad. Restarting xmonad with the focus in the non-tabbed workspace while
the tab windows are managed makes for weirdness: the tabs appear in the
correct place, but the spaces where the tabbed windows used to be are
empty (attachment 2). After the focus changes, the tabs become managed
windows like before.

If this error is due to a module from XMonadContrib, please tag this issue
with 'Component-Contrib' below.

Note that the empty space in the lower-right corners of the screenshots is
because my right screen is only 720 pixels tall.
