Hi Don, Thanks for your reply. I've never used gdb -- any advice on
what exactly I need to do? I think I need to start this from
.xinitrc as when xmonad crashes it does so on login so will it be
# in .xinitrc
gdb $CABAL_BIN/xmonad > ~/debug.txt

I listed most of these already: GHC 6.10.1, X version is (the ubuntu
intrepid package) 1:7.4~5ubuntu3, xmonad 0.8.1 installed via cabal. Re
a clean build, I tried to upgrade/reinstall with cabal just now and it
fails when trying to install unix:

Let me know if it's useful to see my .xinitrc and xmonad.hs. I am using very few
extensions, just tabbed layout. I'll experiment with removing this.
