comment Xmonad is not changing layouts
Actually, you can test if the problem is what I described. Just press mod and mouse-drag a window, see if this is the issue.

comment Script to SCP files works manually but not through cron
Just some hints, key-based auth for scp will let you get rid of the expect script; and cron should send you a mail when something goes wrong -- anything there? Also your strategy could be a little risky, when, say, someone deletes /server/public_html/ and nobody notices it before the backup is run, the empty folder will kill your backup.

comment Some really insane values in sys part of process' timing
Beware that there could be two times in your system, /usr/bin/time and possibly the bash built-in command (maybe other shells have one, too). So maybe the respectively other one works fine. Is it consistent behavior or a one-time thing? (Also there are other ways to measure things, e.g. Systemtap]

If you still have access to both versions, you could compare their dmesg and lsmod output regarding required modules, maybe it becomes obvious then
