If you roll over an default browser tooltip, onmouseout and onmouseover events will be fired for element's below which invoked tooltip

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. hoover an element which shows up an tooltip (eg. image)
2. move mouse left of the tooltip and then move mouse inside of tooltip (slowly)

Actual Results:  
if element(s) you are hoovering has(have) a assigned dom event onmouseover/onmouseout, and you rollover an tooltip which that element html tag invoked - the element will loose focus / onmouseout event will be fired following a quick onmouseover event firing. 

in short - element looses and receives back the focus. 

Expected Results:  
i've tested this behavior on all popular browsers ( on windows platform and expected result would be that roll overed element NEVER looses focus until you roll out of the element.

I've recorded screen with demonstration of the bug:
