You have to set it before showing the window.

If you set it to Dock, you're claiming that the window is a special kind
of window like the GNOME Panel, so your windowmanager is just ignoring
it completely. That's why I suggested setting it to Utility. That says
it should stay floating above other windows, but still have a titlebar.
