Bug Description

In Qt it is possible to define so-called "status tips" on QActions with setStatusTip. These provide a short help message in the status bar of the application when the user selects a menu option. This is like a tooltip, but for menu items.

However, in Ubuntu Precise (appmenu-qt version 0.2.6) the status tips don't appear at all. They do appear when defining "QT_X11_NO_NATIVE_MENUBAR" so it is clear that the problem lies with appmenu-qt.

I've quickly checked the code, and there appears to be no facility to export the status tips or to show them when the user selects the menu item.

I'd say this is more a dbus menu bug/wish since it does not seem to have the concept of status tips for menu items thus appmenu-qt can't export them.
