Hover / Docstring Popup Window

    I'm using Eclipse 20100218 (Galileo) with PyDev on a Mac with Snow Leopard 10.6.3

    If Show docstrings? under Preferences | Pydev | Editor | Hover is checked, some of the time when I hover the mouse over
    text in the editor a window (or something) briefly flashes on my screen before the popup text is displayed. The window is
    not constrained to the Eclipse window.  There is no entry made in the error log.  The window is flashed so quickly that I've
    not been able to make out any details.

    It doesn't happen all the time, but is fairly repeatable.

    Can you please report that as a bug? I haven't able to reproduce that here, so, it probably deserves better investigation. Please add in the bug:
    1. Can you reproduce this with any code hover in pydev?
    2. Does it happen on other editors (e.g.: java)
