Mouse over, pop-up info box and flickering

I am trying to display a box similar to what iCal does for the date entries. An example of the iCal info box can be seen here:

Not finding a freely available solution already available I decided to make my own. The problem is that I am getting flickering when the mouse is moved over the element I am interested in. Below is the HTML, containing the style and Javascript. Can anyone suggest a solution?

BTW While not included in the example, the 'left-marker-2.png' image is a left facing triangle, with a little more white to the base to avoid seeing the border of the info box. The point is shown over the element.

Edit: img attributes were stripped by posting!? Now fixed.
I agree. Here's the link:
