[xmonad] For Darcs-Head: How to change Keybindings

I just switched from the old way to change the Config to the new one
with the .xmonad directory but ran into two problems:

1. I want to override the MOD+p call, because I need dmenu to be run
with a additional parameter (fn for fontname). I dont want to copy the
whole keys-config to my own config but only override the one keypress.
As I got now Haskell-Knowledge at all, I would be glad if somebody could
help me here.

2. If I try to restart XMonad using MOD+q nothing happens, it doesnt
reload at all. On the Console I can see:
xmonad: ExecuteFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

I dont think my setup is special at all:
my PATH is ~/bin:~/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games
I configured xmonad using
--prefix=/home/dominik --user
and installed it without parameters. The XMonad Binary went into
~/bin/xmonad, which should be right.

So, where is the problem? Everything works if I restart XMonad by hand
(killing the xserver and starting again)

Thanks for everybody who helps me.
