I see this as well, and have for a while; I had thought it was related to
some of my experimental modules, but it continued when I removed most of my
ManageHook and went to a relatively vanilla setup (but still using
FadeInactive); when I removed FadeInactive as well, it went away.

I'm inclined to agree with the assertion that it's related to using
xcompmgr, which has a number of odd bugs.

(I also see slow compilation in that particular setup, but that has less to
do with xmonad than with it running in an EC2 micro instance, which really
doesn't have enough memory to run ghc properly....)
