In case anybody is impacted by the same bug, I use the following 
startup script as a workaround (launched by xfce):

pkill xfsettingsd
# make sure xfsettingsd has released its passive grab on <Super>e
sleep 1
# restart xmonad and sleep long enough for it to acquire the grab
xmonad --restart &
sleep 1
# restore xfce settings
xfsettingsd &
# sleep long enough for xfsettingsd to mess up with xrandr settings
sleep 2
# fix xrandr to my taste
xrandr  --output LVDS1 --primary --mode 1280x800 --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1200 --rotate normal --right-of LVDS1
