[Xmonad] trouble with xmonad on OS X

I've just installed xmonad on OS X, but I'm having trouble running it.
When I start X11 and type "xmonad" into the terminal this error is
xmonad: fatal error: request code=2, error code=10
Error: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)
I'm running these software versions:
* OS X 10.4.10/ppc on a Powerbook G4
* Apple's X11.app (1.1.3 -- XFree86 4.4.0)
* ghc 6.6.1, installed from macports
* X11-extras 0.2, installed manually
* xmonad 0.2, installed manually
Could this be Xinerama-related? I have a second display attached to
my laptop, but I've tried running xmonad without the second display
attached and it fails with the same error message.
When I configured the X11-extras package, these warnings were
generated (although it build successfully):
checking X11/extensions/Xinerama.h usability... no
checking X11/extensions/Xinerama.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: X11/extensions/Xinerama.h: present but cannot be compiled

configure: WARNING: X11/extensions/Xinerama.h: in the future, the
compiler will take precedence

If it helps, here is the console.log snippet generated when starting X11
XFree86 Version 4.4.0 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)

Any help is appreciated.
