Yup, this is a definite drawback. The problem, of course, is that the logHook
only runs when xmonad's status changes.
Actually, I wonder if we could use the new eventHandlerHook (or
whatever it's called) to run the logHook at regular intervals (it
shouldn't hurt to run the logHook *more* often). We just need some
external process to generate synthetic X events of some sort. Anyone
know how to do that
