Initial Comment:
I don't know if this is a GTK issue or Gaim, but it
deserves looking into:

Platform: Windows XP
Gaim Version: All that I have used (.60 -> 1.12)
GTK Version:  2.4.X

Problem #1:  When right clicking on the system tray
icon, a menu of options comes up.  If you do NOT click
on one of these options, it does not go away.  

Problem #2:  When clicking on links in a message
window, a tooltip for that link pops up immediately. 
This tooltip really has no function (that i can see)
other than telling you what link you are hovering over
(maybe people can spoof links?)  Anyways, when you
click a link, the tooltip stays on the forefront, even
in front of the browser.  Clicking on it to remove it
sends focus back to Gaim.

Mostly just annoying; not really flaws.

Anyways, I'm currently studying programming and thought
of some solutions (I'll check back in a few months,
after school is done and maybe contribute some fixes):

Solution #1:  When the program loses focus, close the
relevant menu/tooltip.  Not really sure how to program
this, but I'm sure its an option.

Solution #2:  Make tooltips in message windows pop up
after 2-3 seconds, instead of as soon as the mouse
stops moving.
