[xmonad] xmobar disappears

When I restart xmonad with a M-q command my xmobar disappears. There's an
xmobar process running and it's not obviously blocked. (strace shows it doing
things, including recvfrom and writev both with non-zero positive return codes).
Xmonad also appears to think it's there in at least some sense because there's a
strut on the top of the screen. But instead of there being anything visible, I
can just see the wallpaper window...
This is all under LightDM/Ubuntu12.04. If I attempt to alter the "root window"
(with something like display -window root some.jpg) the wallpaper doesn't
change, suggesting that there is a wallpaper window lying on top of the "real
root window". Also, the wallpaper responds to right-clicks and brings up a
gnome-config type menu.
So, perhaps my xmobar restarts underneath the wallpaper and is thus obscured.
If so, how might I bring it to the fore?
I'm running a cabal xmonad and xmobar on top of Ubuntu12.04, with an
/usr/share/xsessions/xmonad.desktop that looks like:
Comment=Lightweight tiling window manager
and a /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/xmonad.session that looks like:
