thanks for your report.
I don’t think this is technically a problem with xmonad; xmonad is just
not responsible for drawing the background.

That is one solution. But there are many more, such as running a proper
desktop program in the background (e.g. natuilus) or simply running
$ xsetroot -solid black
as part of your session.
I have local modifications to the xmonad package to support
a .xmonad/xmonad-session-rc session script where these things can easily
go. I guess I should upload these soon.
