Special slots were not intended to overlap. I am not sure we are going to fix this issue as special slots are actually laid in the same panel as highlight slots that show mouse overs and drop shadows and messing with it may lead to unintended results. However I would agree that it would be nice if developers could specify ZIndices for the special slots. Perhaps we will see to it in the future.
