Are you running a compositing manager? The fade hooks only set window
properties for a compositing manager; xmonad is not itself a compositing
manager, and I'm not sure it should try to get into that business. (Go look
at how compositing managers for X11 work to see why.) compton seems to be
the most reliable of the standalone compositing managers, although all of
them have bugs.
