Package: vlc
Version: 0.8.6.a.debian-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream


something is wrong with vlc's displaying of the tooltip windows. Those
things that appear if you leave your mouse cursor for 10 seconds on the
volume control bar. However, this tooltip makes me crazy. First, it does
no longer disappear. No matter how long the cursor is moved away from
the volume control. Second, it stays on top of ALL windows. That sucks,
there is no way to move that thing go away but terminate vlc. It appears
not to be WM dependent, and it seems to be not registered as a regular
window but just painted over the X framebuffer or so.

Here is a screen shot, to demonstrate the problem:
