Issue 93: "unclean" reinstallation of xmonad fails to restart (sometimes)

New issue report by valery.vv:
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. for d in xmonad XMonadContrib; do (cd $d && darcs pull -a); done
2. configure/build/install xmonad and XMonadContrib, omitting the
   `clean' step
3. make sure configuration is OK: ghci -Wall ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs
4. restart xmonad

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
xmonad fails with linker error message (see below), reverting to
default configuration. NOTE: most of "unclean" reinstallations are OK,
but sometimes the problem manifests.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
The latest xmonad and XMonadContrib from darcs; Linux (Debian testing);
GHC 6.6.1

Please provide any additional information below.
$ cat .xmonad/xmonad.errors

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

It doesn't look good (for me) to go throught complete reinstallation
procedure (with `runhaskell Setup.lhs clean') each time I update
from darcs. It's time-consuming... and I expect compiler to correctly
handle references.

If this error is due to a module from XMonadContrib, please tag this issue
with 'Component-Contrib' below.
