I heard you were looking for some help in #xmonad about this issue.
Let's see if we can figure it out.

Let's start with ~/.xsession-errors. Is there any info in there that
seems to explain what might be going on?

Another thing to do is add a line in your xmonad.hs config that on
startup prints the PATH environment to the screen as well. If you can
get xterm, you should be able to get gnome-terminal.

I also presume you can load it in a regular gnome session from another
window manager perfectly fine?
