I'm using xmonad on Ubuntu Maverick (10.10)

First of all I created a new Desktop Entry to make the xmonad session to be accessible from the GDM login screen, but after a reboot GDM doesn't start, and xmonad starts BEFORE gdm, with some strange behaviour (the desktop doesn't change).

Maybe is it a problem with this line of xmonad.hs which I use to open xmobar?

   xmobar <- spawnPipe "xmobar"
