The correct thing to do is to set a property on decoration windows,  
preferably one that links them to the decorated window (window ids  
are perfectly acceptable for this) so that xmonad can re-adopt them  
when restarted without state (or after mod-shift-space? --- and  
possibly only to destroy them in that case so it can start over with  
a clean slate).
