The lost opportunity of the docking bar tooltip is good point but I
think we and the users can live without that tooltip.
Another good point is that there is no point in having the docking bars
microscopically small any longer so I have attached a new patch that
makes them larger. You need to make install in $GIMP_SRC_ROOT/themes in
order for the change in docking bar height to take effect. I also fixed
another issue with trying to hide a destroyed docking bar.
