Bug Description

Despite the icons being clickable, moving the cursor to the edge shows no text unless I am hovering over the icon itself. For a bit, this made me think I actually had to click the icon. The text for the icon name should show up.

Attached is a small gif to show what I mean.

I can confirm that in Unity, hovering over any margin around a tile will display the tooltip text associated.

Fixing this would probably fix bug #728598 as well

Please find attached a patch which moves the MouseArea handler from the 'tile' Item out to the 'looseItem' Item so that tooltips and the context menu are shown in the area immediately around the tile as well as the tile itself.
