I've attached my Config.hs file to this e-mail.  Other than a custom 
configuration input for the tabbed layout, changing which programs 
"Alt-Shift-Enter" and "Alt-p" execute, and having a tabbed layout as my 
only layout, it is mostly the same as the stock version.  My .xinitrc 
looks like the following:

#!/usr/bin/env zsh
echo "Running on $HOST @ `date`" >>& ~/xmonad.log
exec ssh-agent ~/bin/xmonad >>& ~/xmonad.log

Upon logging in via gdm, I
   (1) hit "Alt-p" to open dmenu,
   (2) type in "thunderbird",
   (3) once Thunderbird is open, double click on the first
       message in my inbox (and made sure to send myself mail
       beforehand if it were to be empty).  This opens up
       a second window,
   (4) hit "Alt-Shift-c"
And the session dies returning me to gdm.

This is the contents of the generated xmonad.log:

Running on babylon @ Tue Jul 10 13:18:30 EDT 2007
Xlib:  extension "XINERAMA" missing on display ":0.0".
The application 'Gecko' lost its connection to the display :0.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.

Before running the above test I made sure I had pulled all the latest 
xmonad and xmonadcontrib patches.  I'm building with GHC 6.6 installed 
on Ubuntu Linux through the package system.
