Tim, please excuse me if I'm getting this wrong.
I seems that Tim is implying that he agrees that this behaviour by Opera is
not a good thing but that there are some non-technical reasons why it
exists in this form, and that maybe Tim would get into trouble if he
publicly expressed his own views, and finally that Tim has little influence
over any possible change with respect to this behaviour.
I would like to add my voice to the group that wants this tooltip behaviour
to be fixed. Whatever problem the current method is trying to solve, it is
simply not working, instead it causes side effects that are very
undesirable. OS, please invest energy in finding a better solution to the
'problem' that the current tooltip behaviour is trying to be a 'solution'
"Down with mediocracy!"
