           Summary: Problem with "sticky" tooltips in album view
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.10.0
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: dkde at gardnersworld.org

Version:           0.10.0 (using KDE 4.2.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

When I am in the album view looking at thumbnails, a tooltip appears
if I hover over an image for a second or so. The tooltip fades in
quite quickly rather than appearing instantly. If, while the tooltip
is fading in, I click on an image to preview it, the tooltip
disappears, the preview image is shown and the tooltip reappears
again in the same position. Until I pass the mouse over the tooltip,
it will not go away.

This keeps happing to me (every minute or two) and is quite
distracting. It took me a while to figure out how to reproduce it
and it is quite hard to get the timing just right when trying to do
it deliberately, but it does seem to be caused by switching views
just as the tooltip is fading in.

The tooltip even stays open when I open the Settings dialog box
(and obscures my view). In that case, I have to close the dialog
box and pass the mouse over the tooltip to get rid of it, as it
will not go away while the dialog is open. I guess that the tooltip
does not register any mouse movements while the modal dialog is

Is there a problem in the code that dismisses the tooltips if
their display is interrupted while they are fading in?
