You are not dreaming at all. The effect you describe is actually our take on imitating the new push transitions introduced in iOS 7 native UI. Unlike iOS 6, the next view indeed overlaps the previous one. In our upcoming release (Q1), we put some more effort in the details - the previous view gets dark, and the header contents are animated differently.
Now, the interesting thing is that in your video I can see the previous view elements overlapping the next one. We have not observed such issue so far. My suggestion is to upgrade to Q1 and see if it changes anything. If the previous view contents still pop over the next view, we will look into this problem further.
