It's a bug with toplevel, which ChatFrame1 has (and ChatFrame1EditBox, but the parent is the culprit with this bug).

  <Button name="StrataParent" toplevel="true" frameStrata="MEDIUM" movable="true" parent="UIParent">
    <Size x="100" y="100"/>
      <Anchor point="CENTER"/>
    <NormalTexture file="Interface\Icons\WoW_Token01"/>
      <Button name="StrataChild" frameStrata="HIGH">
        <Size x="80" y="80"/>
          <Anchor point="CENTER" relativePoint="RIGHT"/>
        <NormalTexture file="Interface\Icons\PetJournalPortrait"/>
On live clients the child frame will stay above other toplevel "MEDIUM"-strata frames (like bags) when bags are brought to the front.

On beta client the child frame will drop below other toplevel "MEDIUM"-strata frames when bags are brought to the front, even after a SetFrameStrata to "HIGH" or "DIALOG".
