New issue 415 by nwfilardo: xmonad assumes that the shell can find it in  

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Run xmonad by full path, not "xmonad", with xmonad not in $PATH
2. Attempt to restart xmonad; the exec will fail.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

By default, I would expect xmonad to use the paths baked in by Cabal, but  
perhaps there is reason not to.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

0.9.1, built from darcs.  Debian sid.

I'm attaching a first pass of a patch for this, but something seems wrong  
with it; why do I need to specify Paths_xmonad in the .cabal file?
