since WP3.9/TinyMCE 4 image edit overlay button not shown anymore WordPress


I use wp_editor() to load a custom tinymce instance for editing the popuptexts of maps. See demo at [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

There is an issue since WP3.9/TinyMCE4.0 when inserting an image: before 3.9 when you hovered the image, you were shown the edit and remove overlay buttons in the top left corner of the image. With WP3.9/TinyMCE4.0 this is not shown anymore, see attached screenshot.

Please see the core trac ticket on how I load the editor on backend: [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

Does anyone know how I can get these "edit hover-buttons" back?
