Always keep an application open

Doesn't this LaunchAgent prevent you from logging out? Every time you try to log out, Stickies relaunches and blocks the logout.

No, it shouldn't. launchd has a special procedure for logout and shutdown, in which it disables launchd jobs (for precisely this reason, I think - the KeepAlive key is commonly used for certain kinds of background tasks).

I rebooted several times to test this claim and the shut down was cancelled the first time only. I don't know why it happened only the first time.

Maybe you had "sudo launchctl load [...]" by mistake?

You lost me here. All I did is implementing the steps as instructed and did not change anything in between reboots.
