Not consciously, but it was running. I killed it. Both dzen2 and
xmobar now interact with toggle struts as expected.

Many thanks.

Personally, I can't imagine why someone running XMonad would want to
set the wallpaper. The whole point is pretty much to make sure that
every pixel is occupied by a useful window. The only time I get to see
what is on the root window is for the fraction of a second between
creating a new workspace and opening something on it :-)

Thank you for your help.
