Keyboard and/or Floating Icon do not check display bounds

Bug Description

I was working with the onboard keyboard on the Raspberry Pi on a kiosk-mode application. Initially I was developing on a panel-less board (but with an HDMI monitor plugged in). When I was happy with the SD image, I moved the card to a Pi with a touch panel attached. When turned on my app, the onboard icon was nowhere to be seen! I figured it could be out of bounds, which I later proved by booting it up on a system with HDMI, moving the icon closer to the screen origin, then booting the card in the touch-panel version, and the icon appeared on screen. I still don't know where those coordinates are saved in the system. I think the icon should check to see if it is within screen boundaries every time it pops up. Further testing proved that the keyboard does not check boundaries either. I have no way from the screen to get them back in bounds AFAIK.
