Summary: Buddy tooltip sticking on top

Initial Comment:
Buddy list tooltips can still get stuck on top across 
several windows and applications. I know there are 
several closed duplicates for this, but did not see open 
tooltip bugs that match.

1. Open a conversation window from your buddy list.
2. Move the conversation window so it obscures a 
portion of your buddy list.
3. Using alt-tab, or clicking on the title bar, bring the 
buddy list to the front.
4. Find a buddy who would be obscured if the 
conversation window had focus. Double click that buddy. 
5. It will take up to 1 second for the tooltip to appear. 
During that time, do not let your mouse move within the 
boundaries of the buddy list.

Voila. You have a stuck tooltip for your buddy at the 
location of your mouse.

The tooltip can only be dismissed if you move your 
mouse within the visible boundaries of the buddy list, 
regardless of whether the buddy has focus.

No event is written to debug window when the tip sticks 
or clears.

Gaim 1.5.0 (but has been happening since for 10 
months, across versions).
Windows XP Pro SP1
