GMaps v3: addDomListener mouseenter event handling not working on Chrome, Safari

Is this a bug in the google maps API?

If I use the prototype library to add the mouseenter, and mouseleave event handlers, it works just fine. But if I use addDomListener, it doesn't work. Although it works in Firefox, the event handling function never gets called in Chrome or Safari.


Use the Maps API for adding event handlers to the Map, or other API objects.

Example with Map Enter/Out:

google.maps.event.addListener(map, "mouseover", function() {
  // Mouse Entered the Map

google.maps.event.addListener(map, "mouseout", function() {
  // Mouse Left the Map
