I could be wrong, but I think this has more to do with your .conkyrc
file as opposed to pypanel config file.

Some settings from my own .conkyrc file which may, or may not help:

    own_window yes
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_type desktop
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

Hope these help.
