#400 Tab Tooltip are stubborn sometimes


I sometimes have the effect that the tab tooltips don't
get undisplayed if my mouse pounter leaves the tab. In
these cases, I have to switch active document to get
rid of the offending tooltip.
I don't know how to reliably recreate this, but it happens
often enough to be annoying.

I use the RC1 binary on Debian Sarge.

    The error is still here with my patched version of NEdit
    using Debian Sarge's OM 2.2.3.

    Here I get it w/ a 100% reproducible scenario:
    *click* a tab handle and leave the mouse pointer over it, until you get the tooltip (several seconds here). That's it, that tooltip is sticky and won't go away automatically.

    It's important that the focus is set on the tab handle then you click or hover no other tab handle, otherwise the tooltip won't be sticky. Hovering tab handles in other conditions won't reproduce the issue.

    To get rid of the tooltip, mouse the mouse away from the tab handle, then hover the tab handle again until you get the tooltip, now it's a non-sticky one.

    Tested w/ Nedit 5.5 (Aug 29, 2006), Fedora Core 5 openmotif 2.3.
