I'm trying to use gkrellm (because I've already got the configured the
way I want them) as a status bar with XMonad. I read the faq, tweaked
my xmonad.hs (a modified copy of the original, attached) and set the
dock_type to 1 (which can be done with a config option in recent
versions of gkrellm).

Doesn't work. gkrellm stays in floating space, and the windows don't
shrink to allow it any space. I did try xmobar, and that worked as

Searching for gkrellm and doc or bar turns up the xmonad FAQ as the #1
hit, and a few things that point to it, and nothing else relevant.

Anyone got any hints as to what my be going on? Anyone using gkrellm
as a status bar with xmonad?

I've attached the xmonad.hs I'm using on the off chance it'll help.
