      Changing the wmode helped a little. The mouse tracks correctly when
      the panel is dragged around over most of the screen areas, however it
      still is unresponsive when the panel is over an iframe. I'll put
      together simple example of this problem.

      btw, did you have a chance to look at
      http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/ydn-javascript/message/38440? I
      posted simple nested layout code which demonstrates the 'invalid
      argument' error.
