Tooltips frequently appear below menus

Bug #134955 reported by Alexander Jones on 2007-08-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Won't Fix
gtk+2.0 (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Open the "Applications" menu
Highlight "Accessories"
Wait for tooltip to appear
Highlight "Games", underneath

Notice that the tooltip appears immediately, but the menu appears a short while later. The menu obscures the tooltip.

This does not always happen the first time, try moving backwards and forwards between items and it will eventually happen.

Tooltips should have the highest Z order than any other window class.

I just tried to repeat this on Hardy and I can't - however I think this is because it has been avoided rather than fixed.

There don't seem to be any tooltips on the top level menus that have children for me anymore hence I can't trigger this.
So it might still be valid.
