Summary: cosmetic issue

Initial Comment:
I would like to report a cosmetic issue.  I am using
windows xp version of gaim v1.1.0.  I have also
downloaded v1.1.1 and it does the same thing.

When you put your mouse over a user in your buddy list
it shows a yellowish box with there name, logged in,

Well this box seems to get stuck on the screen
sometimes.  It doesnt remove itself like it should. 
The only way i could duplicate the error was by:

Open buddy list>>move your mouse over the username and
click once with the right mouse button after you click
just move your mouse away from the name.  The box stays
on the screen even if you tab to a new window.

It does it other times but I dont know what casues it.
 I think its related.   I kinda like the features and
dont want to turn it off.  I never even really looked
for a way to turn it off in the PREF.  Any chance you
guys can fix it?

I'm experiencing the same 'bug', -- not sure if it's a
problem with Gaim or an issue relating to how the Windows
GUI supports GTK+ --  using Windows XP Home Edition SP2
(v5.1) with GTK+2.4.14 for Win32, running Gaim v.1.1.1 for

I can recreate this error by double clicking on a 'buddy',
to bring up a IM window. Whether I move my cursor or not, as
long as it doesn't cross the buddy list window (focused or
not), I will get that 'buddy' info pop-up displayed on my
screen where my cursor is currently.

As well, I've tried the extprefs plug-in suggested above and
changed the delay to 2500 ms. I still get the same issue, as
long as I my cursor doesn't cross the buddy list window.

Not a terribly important bug, but I do agree with Ryan, it
get's quite annoying, very fast.

Cheers and keep up the good work,

You can work around it using "Tooltip Reveal Delay" in the
