That will depend entirely on your window manager.

set_keep_above() is just a hint. and, according to the docs, is not  
supposed to be used for drawing attention to dialogs, but more for  
things like making your music player stay visible over other  
windows.  set_transient_for() is the traditional way to get a window  
to stay atop another window, but that's usually only within your app.

If the window is full-screen, the window manager may consider it to  
"own" the screen and disallow any other window taking it over in the  
z order.

Have you considered an audible notification instead of a visual one?

There is 
which looks promising.
A Gnome front-end for rdesktop which promises geometry and depth control.
