Another possibility for pop-behinds (and perhaps popups in general) 
is to close any popups that the user hasn't interacted with when the 
user leaves the site (for some definition of site that's probably 
broader than single page) by navigating away or closing the tab. 
I think this might be an idea worth investigating. I like this idea.
