I am running xmonad on Debian with xdm from ~/.xsession which contains:

if [ -d ~/bin ]; then
  export PATH
xmodmap -e 'add mod4 = Super_L' -e 'add mod4 = Super_R'
exec xmonad

Also, xmonad does not properly handle its children exiting, so I have
to start programs as "(urxvt&)" instead of "urxvt&" to prevent them
from becoming zombies (or I could just remove "exec").
