Downvote pop-up is overlapped by the question, if the question is transparent

I just downvoted an answer and wasn't able to read the text in the tooltip because it was placed underneath a code block in the answer.

This happened in a Chrome like browser version 16.

The post I used in the example below is here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/2773421/444991.

  • @starx: the answer seems to have been hidden from view when it reached 4 downvotes.

  • I apologize for the noise! I wanted to help and searched for duplicates but couldn't find any - but then again I didn't search for pop-up (vs. tooltip).

It must be a z-index problem, while adding extra transparent effect to the answer.

I am sure It will be a fixed.

  • I'd guess that it's some minor CSS problem. I just wanted to report it, and I thought this is the right place for it.
