This is not a screenkey bug. i3 manages the default behavior of new windows. Add the following to your `.i3/config`:

`for_window [title="^screenkey"] floating enable`

I think it's a bug on screenkey, in my opinion screenkey should set the appropriated X hints to ensure it floats on top every other application. Other applications like gimp's toolbar windows or open dialog windows behave correctly on i3.
