#27955: Admin bar breaks 'hover-click' functionality on iOS

 I'm working on a couple of client sites where the design features a list
 of posts that users can hover over to reveal additional information in an
 overlay, then click the post to get to the single post itself.

 During a testing phase, one client discovered that they were not able to
 click through to any posts using iOS devices. Touching the post activated
 the overlay, and the 'hover' state was released on touch end without
 triggering the link. Through testing on several devices, we can to
 discover that the issue only existed when the client was logged into the
 WordPress dashboard on their iOS device. When the admin bar was
 deactivated either through logging out or by using a plugin to deactivate
 it, all devices functioned as expected.

 This issue only appears to affect iOS devices due to its 'hover-click'
 functionality and was replicable in both current versions of Safari and
 Chrome. Because Android devices do not have the 'hover-click'
 functionality built in, clicking on posts with overlays take the user
 directly to the posts pages.
