Issue 192: doesn't check for existing window manager

New issue report by t.lainson:
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Run any reparenting window manager
2. Launch xmonad while the other WM is still running

What is the expected output?
"xmonad: fatal: a window manager is already running"

What do you see instead?
Lots of X11 BadAccess errors, and two window managers trying to run at once.

Haven't checked whether it's been fixed since 0.7 was released.
