[SOLVED] Links in Overlay Header Image not working?

I am using this code in the Overlay Header Image field:

HTML Code:
<div id="social_icons">
		<li><a href="https://www.url.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.mysite.com/ug_facebook_icon.png"></a></li>
The icon is displayed but the link is not. When I hover over the icon the same link is displayed that is used for the image (header image) behind it.

Since this is kind of precisely the code that is used in the example I have no clue why this won't work. Is it not possible to link the header image while at the same time overlaying it with icons linking to a different target?

Update: OK, that IS the reason. When I deactivate "Make header image clickable?" then the icon link works. So is there a way to get both links to work?

It is probably the z-index, try this, add the following to CSS Inserts
HTML Code:
#social_icons {z-index: 99;}
