Weird Google Image Menu Hover for Some

Since the new Google design was released, some people using certain browsers see a weird Google menu. The menu seems to overlay on top of the Google logo and part of the search box and search results.

I have seen this on some browser emulators but figured it only impacted a few people. There are some threads at Google Web Search Help forums with people complaining about the issue. Here is a screen capture:

Those icons are a bit revealing also, don't you think?

Does that look like what you're seeing?

Also, what browser and operating system are you using?

So if you see it, please go to the thread at Google Web Search Help and specify your browser, browser version and computer type.

This seems to be the sprites implementation of Google. I see the popup when I disable CSS for a Google results page. Sprites are used to increase page speed. You put all images in one image (fewer server requests needed). With CSS you can make individual images visible from this large image.
