overflow: auto elements and mouseout on layers

A scrollable element (overflow: auto) triggers a mouseout event on an overlaying layer, even when the mouse doesn't move outside the layer.

I positioned a workaround-layer, which had also a overflow-attribute:

Two things are important:
- the order of the div-layer in the source-code (workaround-layer has to be after the real scrollable div-layer)
- the use of "z-index"

In source-code you find also a workaround-layer, which is good for general use.
