Ok - i did this and restarted pidgin, and still nothing.  Where would
the dzen bar appear?  i have other dzen instances running just fine.
if it matters, here's the relevant lines from my config:

statusBarCmd= "dzen2 -bg '#2c2c32' -fg 'grey70' -w 370 -x 0 -ta l -p -e ''"
main = do din <- spawnPipe statusBarCmd
          xmonad $ withUrgencyHook dzenUrgencyHook { args = ["-bg",
"purple", "-fg", "white", "-xs", "-1"] }
                 $ sConfig d

Certainly I see nothing on screen 1 --- should I?  And for how long,
and where?  I don't even know what I am supposed to be seeing.  :)
