I am now back to the version from "cabal install xmonad ..." (which
freezes too) and have found something, that I can reproduce: 

I start the session with metacity, open a terminal and enter "killall
metacity && xmonad &". Now I am on xmonad with the terminal still open.
When I close the terminal with the kill-shortkey (by default (modm .|.
shiftMask, xK_c)) I get a freeze. It's only partial, I can call Gnome-Do
for example, but I can't switch workspaces anymore. I also got freezes
when starting firefox.
