This happens because there is no concept of "z-index" in GTK and when widgets (and containers including other widgets) overlap unpredictable things can happen.

I am currently working on a solution for this.

I couldn't find a way on how to tame all the widgets that were bleeding and how to prevent that. The workaround fix for this is that messages move down and make room for reply box.

I attached the relevant branch.
