I was looking into this issue several months ago, but didn't get very far.
I am sure that Google implements their popups in a different way, but
this doesn't seem to be an issue in Google maps. I guess that they
just destroy a popup when you click near the tail, this allows you to
create a new popup with your next click. I assume that one could
customize their own popups to do this. Of course, you wouldn't be
able to have multiple popups for nearby features.
Shawn, can you share the URL to the example in the sandbox?
