I've sent a patch to man/xmonad.hs adding notes to EwmhDesktops users,
see [2]. Also the notable changes page on the xmonad wiki [3] has notes
about this with example recommended solution and links to
code.haskell.org EwmhDesktops source for more detail. As soon as 0.9
haddocks go up I'll update links to point to that instead. Will also
update the config-archive page on the wiki. Ewmh breakage is discussed
at the top of the page under the "Updates that require changes in
xmonad.hs" section and also under the "Updated modules" EwmhDesktops item.

Please let me know if any of this documentation needs improvement and
ensure that these notes (or some better version) get committed to
man/xmonad.hs to be distributed with xmonad source.
