As an example of this:

import XMonad
import qualified XMonad.StackSet as W
import XMonad.Config.Gnome
import XMonad.Util.EZConfig (additionalKeys)

main = xmonad $ gnomeConfig { -- NOTE the extra $ sign
         modMask  = mod4Mask
       -- copied-ish from XMonad/Config.hs
       [((m .|. mod4Mask, k), windows $ f i)
         | (i, k) <- zip (workspaces gnomeConfig) [xK_KP_1 .. xK_KP_9]
         , (f, m) <- [(W.greedyView, 0), (W.shift, shiftMask)]]

Given that you're holding shift, I'm surprise it doesn't zap the window
to the other workspace. I guess xev might help. Oh, you crazy kids and
your keyboard layouts.
