New issue 467 by bjmpr... at gmail.com: dmenu update changes behaviour

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Update dmenu to 20110719
2. Using default config, press <mod>p

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected: dmenu to run as before
Actual: dmenu runs, but no choices, like ``dmenu < /dev/null''

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.9.2

Please provide any additional information below.

Fix by using ``spawn "dmenu_run" '' instead of ``spawn "exe=`dmenu_path |  
dmenu` && eval \"exec $exe\"" '' in default config file.
