        This may be asking the obvious, but, have you set the "always on top wm
hint" in Gkrellm?
Another option (that I use) is to MaxSwallow Gkrellm into Wharf. That also gives me
the ability
to roll Gkrellm up with the rest of Wharf (right click) when I need or want the
extra screen real
eatate. I also don't have to specify sticky-state or anything else in the database.
I can still access
Gkrellm's configuration menu with a ctrl-right_click on it.
    The drawbacks (?) are I have to keep Wharf's tiles at a 64x64 size and had to
set Gkrellm's
size to 57 (fits snugly) or less. Any smaller size for Wharf (56x56, 48x48, etc) and
Gkrellm won't
show up.
