New issue 480 by argu... at gmail.com: xmonad merge screens when recompile and  

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Attach external monitor on VGA port of Thinkpad T410i
2. On terminal: xrandr --output VGA --above LVDS --auto
3. Recompile and restart with mod-q

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
xmonad should recompile and restart, xmobar (which is on top of VGA) should  
restart looking good.

xmonad does recompile but when restart it merges everything on LVDS, like  
if my second screen were also LVDS and seems to treat my external monitor  
like an extension of LVDS. I just can move windows to VGA by moving the  
floating window.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.9.2 on Archlinux x86_64

Are you using an xmonad.hs?  Please attach it and the output of "xmonad

No output when "xmonad --recompile"

Please provide any additional information below.

It doesn't seem to happen when I use "xrandr --output VGA --right-of LVDS
