[xmonad] Using xmonad with freenx

I'm trying to run xmonad within a freenx session, but I get this error:

   Xlib:  extension "XINERAMA" missing on display ":1000".
   xmonad-x86_64-linux: XMonad/Main.hsc:83:18-88: Irrefutable pattern 
failed for pattern (Data.Maybe.Just nbc_)

when using this command as x init script for the nx session:

   exec ck-launch-session xmonad

freenx does not support xinerama, but I won't be needing multiscreen 
support, can I work around this somehow? E.g. Can I run xmonad in a way 
that does not require xinerama?

Thanks in advance

Kind regards
