Any hints on how to progress with this?

As I'm doing only inital trials at the moment, I don't want to exit my
session and lose my bazillion windows. Could not running it through
ck-launch-session be the cause of the above? From what you said

... it seems that it shouldn't be a problem, because I'm running in a
session in which nm-applet was, earlier, happily running on
unity-2d-panel, so I'm guessing that the authentication plumbing is in
place. Though I did have to kill that panel to stop trayer from
another systray already running
Is it possible to restart XMonad with ck-launch-session without losing
my current window configuration?
