Summary: Status Message - Permanent, unclosable

Initial Comment:
When I hover my mouse over the entries in the Buddy 
list, a small window appears that has the following 
information:

username
Account:
Last Seen: 21 Hours...
Status: Offline

Found Problem:
When Double clicking on a user in the buddy list, the 
Chat window comes up automatically taking the focus 
away from the Buddy List and pushing the Buddy list 
behind it. (normal behavior)

If you then go back to the buddy window and double 
click on a user that would be covered by the previous 
Chat Window (arbitrary window placement of chat window 
over buddy list) - (because the users share Chat 
Windows via tabbed windows), the Status message 
occasionally becomes permanent and cannot be closed 
without exiting all Gaim window apps.

After playing around with it, I found that the Status 
message will go away *only* when the buddy list is 
browsed again (mouseover event on buddy list).

It appears that the Chat window takes the focus away 
from the Buddy List before the Status Window is 
closed.  Apparently the Status window is closed by the 
Buddy List mouseover events which are not available 
when it loses focus.

Resolution:
Put a timer on the Status Window so that it goes away 
after 3-5 seconds whether or not 

Duplicate:
1) Open Buddy List
2) Double click on buddy
3) Move Window to cover the Buddy icon on buddy list, 
but not cover the entire Buddy List
4) Go back to Buddy List and double click on previous 
buddy several times until it occurs
5) Minimize all Windows - Status Window will not be 
minimized
6) Open Buddy list to remove Status Window

Very Annoying.

This is not a Gaim bug, but a bug in GTK+, the widget toolkit
used by Gaim.  Your bug is being moved to our "gtk bugs" tracker,
where it will be grouped with similar bugs.  When we know a gtk
bug number for this issue, your group number will reflect it.
