If anyone wants to look into that: in order to fix this we need to draw the message box to another widget. Maybe it's possible to draw directly ontop of the main window? Or we might need a transparent floating widget ontop of everything else?

Maybe an overshoot, but what about starting to use GNotification for similar purposes? Although a GApplication is needed for that. What do you think?

That won't work. For one, those are interfering with a full screen dt, Secondly, we use the overlay for live display of typed characters, that wouldn't work with a popup message in the tray bar at all.
