myConfig = gnomeConfig

    , startupHook = myStartupHook
    , modMask = mod4Mask
    , terminal = "uxterm"

Thats whay I'm using. Works fine until I set either Circle of SimpleFLoat

myLayout = simpleFloat ||| Circle ||| tiled ||| Mirror tiled ||| Full

Removing the first two an XMonad/Gnome3 starts correctly.
