The tooltips on the window list in the bottom panel should only appear when the text within is concatenated. If this is not possible, the tooltips should be turned off.

I agree with the original reporter in that showing tooltips for Window List items thats names are not too long to display is both redundant and confusing and should be reconsidered. This is still an issue in Lucid.
