I believe the newer versionns or possibly only the latest git xmobars
adjust to screen reconfigurations on the fly. Disclaimer: haven't run
xmobar in a long while, and no clue if tablet orientation changes are
different from normal xrandr xinerama screen changes.

As far as restarting, mod-q should only change window arrangement if
you've significantly changed the layoutHook in xmonad.hs. Normally all
the windows and workspaces remain as is. You aren't by chance using
mod-shift-q which would log you out of X11 are you?
