I use Ubuntu 9.10 too, with xmonad 9.1 from debian sid. My gnome panel works perfectly, but I don't use the log applet.
In your xmonad.hs there is a section about integrating the log applet with this comment:
-- This retry is really awkward, but sometimes DBus won't let us get our
-- name unless we retry a couple times. ...
Maybe that's the reason for the business.
You could try top or htop, to find out what's going on.
