When I go and look up th ToggleShowDesktop option I find that it acts on windows.
If that is accurate, then lxpanel would be seen by openbox as a window rather than a panel.

I went and looked up the lxpanel configuration just to see if there was an option for type.
The closest that I found was setdocktype (from http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXPanel ).

If your's is set to zero rather than one, then lxpanel may be reporting itself to openbox as a window, rather than as a dock.  This is just a guess, cuz, I've never really used the function myself.
