I don't see anything indicating a problem so far. "xmonad --help"  
should work fine, as should "xmonad --restart". The binary in .xmonad  
is a much less capable piece of code than the one in /usr/bin/xmonad.  
You should not need any special modules or fixes in .xmonad/xmonad.hs,  
so if you've done something like that in an attempt to "fix" what  
isn't broken below, you should undo your fixes before trying "xmonad
