    • We are having a similar issue with ng-bootstrap:

      Here is a simple page where our particular issue can be reproduced:

      In our case, a button has a tooltip (which is a element) that is removed from the DOM in the mouseout event.
      When moving the mouse out of the button through the tooltip, the :hover style of the button stays applied until the mouse is over the button again and leaves it in another way than through the tooltip.
      This issue does not happen if the tooltip is removed from the DOM with a small delay added through setTimeout (instead of synchronously in the mouseout event).
