[Bug 957879] [NEW] Wine tooltips don't disappear entirely from screen


Public bug reported:

This bug does not happen with Unity 2D or Gnome-Shell. Same problem on
both Oneiric and Precise (up-to-date).

When a tooltip from a Wine app disappear, its shadow remains. This can quickly leads to an unusable window.
To clean these shadows, I have to move the window.

I confirmed this bug with Mathcad 14, GeNIe and some others not-known
apps. It does not happen, for example, with VLC or Steam.

If you want to test with something free and lightweight, you can try
with Sumatra: http://blog.kowalczyk.info/software/sumatrapdf/download-

Attached is a picture of a rather extreme case (made with a non-free app).
