Hmm. The xmonad binary being linked to libXinerama.so would seem to
indicate that X11-extras built with Xinerama support enabled. Weird. So
let's try to figure this out, eh?

Please give the versions that you are running of the following:

your X server

What does this program output when you run it under X?

import Graphics.X11.Xlib
import Graphics.X11.Xinerama

main = do
    d <- openDisplay ""
    xineramaQueryScreens d >>= print
    getScreenInfo d >>= print
