It's the event bubbling - mousing out from any active element inside the
div is causing the onmouseout event to fire for the div as a whole.
Rather than using onmouseout, I prefer to place a larger transparent div
under the submenu (so that it completely surrounds it) and detect the
mouseover event on that. You should be able to use the same div to close
all of your submenus as well.
