Hi Michał, thanks for commenting on this thread.

OpenBox at the moment; but I can change if something else is better.

You mean you had to change IceWM's code for this?
That wouldn't surprise me, because I think override_redirect just means
"don't decorate me and don't mess with my size or position". I don't
think it normally implies being "always on top".

I doubt it can be considered a bug. It seems to me that a WM needs to
take specific action in order to implement "always on top" for a window,
and the (normal) overall sense of override_redirect is more "WM, please
just leave me alone".
