gtk.Window.stick() should be used to fix that. I am on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS so my version looks obsolete from what is usually discussed in this bugtracker and i can not create diff for you guys.

To fix this issue in my 'onboard' version i have added
to three places:
1) KbdWindowBase.__init__(self)
2) KbdWindowBase.on_deiconify(self, widget=None)
3) IconPalette. __init__(self):

so both keyboard window and icon are sticky.

Thanks Sergey, I've added that plus a toggle in preferences. Sticky state is enabled by default for now.
