Square window is okay with me.  Is there a way to have it popup when you move the mouse over a specific item in a listview (not just the row or column).  Clicking on it would be okay also, probably would work better if you click so you don't have windows popping up every time you move the mouse.

Not wishing to contradict Jeremy, but no it won't.  I've implemented
balloon tips for the taskbar (NotifyIcon class) in the next version, but
not generic balloon tooltips (Tooltip class).  I hope that can make a
following release, but I've not looked at what's necessary there yet.

If you don't mind the popup windows being square, then you could use
standard tooltips, and you'd be able to turn them into balloon tooltips
with a later release.
