[webkit-dev] Opacity problems

I have a problem with changing opacity thru CSS on floating elements.

On the page: http://www.jonasmunk.dk/ the green newsbox on the right  
(Called "Nyheder" in danish) should change opacity on hover. What  
happens is that the floating elements inside the box disappears. If  
you move the cursor really fast onto the floating elements they don't  
disappear :-)

The same problem is on the page http://www.in2isoft.dk/ (The links in  
the top-right corner - Kontakt  etc.)

I have filed a bug: http://bugzilla.opendarwin.org/show_bug.cgi? 
id=4334 about this

I also filed a bug about a problem with changing opacity with  
javascript: http://bugzilla.opendarwin.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6462

This turned out not to be a bug - but a difference between WebKit and  
Gecko. Safari following the spec about some stacking of elements  
after opacity change - or something.

My question is: Is there a relation between these two? Should I also  
be aware of change in stacking when changing opacity with CSS?

It would be great to have this fixed - Its a great way of making some  
simple effects in pure css.

In my world this is a severe problem. :-)
