I've recently upgraded from xmonad v0.8 to v0.9.  In v0.8, I was able to restart
xmonad within a running Gnome session.  This is extremely useful when trying
out different modifications of ones xmonad.hs file.  However, when doing the
same in v0.9 it completely messes up Gnome making the Gnome.  Which
means I need to log out/log in, and kind of defeats the purpose of restarting

I am using the following keybinding to restart xmonad:

     -- Restart xmonad
    , ((modMask .|. controlMask, xK_q   ),
          broadcastMessage ReleaseResources >> restart "xmonad" True)

Is this still the right command?
