Bingo! I didn't have it in the template.

Would you happen to know what the equivalent missing component might
be for dzen2? (Those still stay alive after xmonad restarts.)

Also, I've still got the problem that the new xmobars don't play
nicely with toggle struts.

Depends on exactly how 'eventually'. With the bazillion restarts I've
been doing, xmobar probably hasn't had the chance to hang around for
too long.
