Hmm, this should work (I run the same command every day).  Are you
running xrandr before or after xmonad starts?

Does xmonad pick up the right screen geometry after restart (mod-q,
make sure xmonad is in your path)?

Has your server loaded the Xinerama extension?  Check with 'xdpyinfo |

PS - you should try running Jason's little diagnostic script from an
earlier post in this thread
