Thanks, after looking at that, apparently it is an upstream bug from
Debian due to lack of Xinerama support in the Haskell X11 libraries.
So, since a few simple recompiles did not seem to correct the issue...

I found a temporary solution that works.  The Slackware Xmonad package
is a simple .tgz, I unarchived it, removed the extraneous install
directory, built a 32-bit libgmp for my 64-bit Ubuntu and am now
happily running the Slackware version of Xmonad on Hardy Heron.
