User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv: Gecko/2008071916 (Gentoo) Firefox/3.0.1

All tooltips are shown in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Jean-François Wauthy editbugs 2008-08-23 17:06:27 CEST
even weirder, tooltips in Firefox are shown correctly.
Comment 2 Christian Dywan 2008-08-23 17:11:15 CEST
Happens here, too. As a matter of fact I know that this is not related to Gtk since I did not upgrade Gtk between switching from Xfce 4.4 to Xfce 4.6.

I suspect Firefox isn't affected because it has its own unique way of creating the tooltip windows. But that doesn't make the issue any less strange.
Comment 3 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2008-08-24 15:27:26 CEST
Help us help you, what tooltips, what toolkit, what version of gtk+, what version of Xfce? As it, this bug report is totally useless (because if we could reproduce the issue we would fix it).

(In reply to comment #3)
> what tooltips,
at least the ones from GTK+
> what toolkit, what version of gtk+,
GTK+ 2.12.11
> what version of Xfce? 
As set in the bug report, SVN trunk
Comment 5 Mike Massonnet editbugs 2009-02-24 02:16:52 CET
Fixed with the release GTK+ 2.15.4.

More info with workarounds (left out in the end) is also on bug #4141.
Comment 6 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2009-02-24 07:51:36 CET
closing as invalid since it's a bug in gtk+ that is now fixed upstream.

Bug #4316
