There isn't anything incompatable between glyoxal and ethidium bromide:
I have stained glyoxylated RNA with EtBr. The staining intensity is reduced
but is still useful. I don't know about staining the filter after transfer,
but if you can cut off your marker lane and stain it separately, that
should work fine.
