Even after restarting your gnome session?

Well, I think it is better to use "gnome-session --session=xmonad", which
I think overrides the dconf org.gnome.desktop.session.session-name key,
as discussed.  But anyway I thought I would just mention the key here for

$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.session session-name
$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session session-name xmonad

(I think forcing fallback mode as above will set the key to 'gnome-fallback'.)
