When I installed xmonad 0.8, I copied the template config file to ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs, changed some setttings, and recompiled xmonad. Everything was fine up till this point. Then I started the X server with xmonad and xmonad used the default settings although it appeared to find the config file.
Any ideas on how I could fix this?

Note that most configs on the xmonad web site are for older versions of the WM. Since it's haskell based, and the config file is really a source file written in haskell, it's very likely that an older config will not compile against a newer version of xmonad sources.
You most likely need to redo your config, modify it to work with your xmonad version.
EDIT: I suggest you to subscribe and ask on the xmonad mailing lists, since xmonad is nothing near a mainstream WM, and very few persons will be able to help around here, I guess. I use it since some months and I am very pleased with it, but I now very little about haskell and the help I can give you is limited by my short experience.
