It's surely nothing to do with xmonad.  However, emacs seems to work
for other people, which suggests it's not emacs.  (That's not to say
there aren't problems with this aspect of emacs---there surely are.)

The debian package (which I'm also using, though I'm building my own
from more recent checkouts) mostly adds a few patches to better fit in
with the debian elisp packages and a few other things.  Nothing
relevant to this, as far as I can see.
