The Diagram elements are not guaranteed to be in the DOM. The widget can switch between SVG, Canvas and VML rendering depending on the browser.
This requires the diagram to provide "native" mouseenter / mouseleave events. This is something that we plan to do soon.
Apologies for the caused inconvenience.
