The actual cause is that rebuilding X11-extras without doing a  
"runhaskell Setup.lhs clean" fails to detect that one of the .hsc  
files changed, so the new bindings don't actually get compiled in  
because the corresponding .hs file is not regenerated.  This is  
documented in the X11-extras README.

This could arguably be called a cabal bug, but it's not an xmonad or  
X11-extras bug per se.
