Page notice overlaps the close button on page settings

I tried to edit Barack Obama using the Visual Editor. The page notice came up - which is fine - but then I clicked on the page settings without dimissing the page notice and wasn't able to dismiss the page notice. The page notice covers the close button so the only button I could press is "apply changes" to causes the page settings window to go away, allowing me to hide the page notice.

I was told in #-visualeditor that you can click anywhere in the notice itself to dismiss it - something I didn't even consider doing because that's not standard behaviour for notifications (considering Facebook and even Echo). Please can we make the page notice dismissable by clicking on the "1 notice" area, even if you've got the page settings window up?

See attached screenshot for an illustration of the problem.

bzimport set Reference to bz50545.

This has now been fixed by Rob; marking as such. I hope we can deploy this to production soon, possibly tomorrow.

This problem is still reproducible with the link editor dialog.
