[Bug 669353] [NEW] Mouseover tooltips not firing up correctly


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I've noticed in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) that all kinds of mouse-
over tooltips are failing to popup correctly. Be it on the menu, windows
list, notification area applet, hyperlink "title" attribute on a
browser, etc.

Normally if you put your mouse pointer over something (that has a
tooltip) and wait for a couple of seconds, the tooltip would show up.
What I'm experiencing is that if you locate the mouse pointer over
something and stop moving it right away, the tooltip won't show up until
you move your mouse again. It's like the mouseover event is detected
after a couple of seconds of the pointer being still, but won't fire up
until you move your mouse again at least 1 pixel.

If you go to System->Preferences->Appearance and disable all effects,
then it begins to behave correctly. It will also begin to behave
correctly if you just kill the compiz process.

I've experienced this problem in the two computers that I've tested,
both of them with an intel video chipset (x3100 and x4500). I've been
able to reproduce this issue with my already installed and up to date
Ubuntu 10.10, as well as booting with the Live CD image.
