As others have said, it's an IE issue, and manipulating z-order doesn't 
help. :-(

For our app we have added some javascript - just before the popup 
appears, we do a collision check on all drop-downs on the page (we 
don't use multi-selects, but it could be extended to include them).  
Any that collide are hidden until the popup goes away.  Originally we 
just hid all drop-downs, but that was too noticeable.

If you want the code, let me know.

Incidentally Safari/Mac has the same issue with the scroll bars on text 
areas (they always appear on top).
