Problems in Firefox with drag and drop from a div with overflow: auto

I believe this is a Firefox bug but I was hoping someone found a
workaround.

I have implemented drag and drop functionality, but if I try to drag an
element from a div that happens to have a div with an "overflow: auto"
it seems to lose the onmouseover event for my target.

Anyone come across this issue and found a resolution?
Please advise.
Here is a link to my code.

Doesn't work at all in Safari, buggy on Firefox Mac. Have a look at
the stuff here, seems to do most of what you are doing and works in
every browser I've tried.

Hey Fred,
Thanks for checking into it.
Actually, I know that the drag and drop works pretty well. It's very
stable. The only problem is the overflow problem with Firefox. I
believe (90% sure) that if I moved to another drag and drop method I
would run into the same problem of it losing focus and not firing the
onmouseover event of the target when firefox has it's overflow:auto
attribute set.

Has anyone seen this issue?
Found a resolution?
Any advice would be great.
thanks
