Oh... It turns out that none of my popup text was working within MLO. (e.g.
When a Tab's name is too long for the space available it should pop up -
and that wasn't working either)
A) even though I had rebooted the popup text was still failing to appear
B) for who knows what reason the pop-up texts have now suddenly re-appeared
- including the "Icon hint" text.
I shall keep an eye out and see if it happens again, but for now the "Icon
hint" text is working nicely :^)
