Yup, I am fully aware of what systray tooltips are :) You didn't mention your 
KDE version in your original email though which is very crucial information  
so I thought  I'd mention both types. At any rate,  unfortunately these 
tooltips can only be disabled by disabling global KDE tooltips under: 
Kcontrol -> Appearance & Themes -> Style. 

(The systray protocol in general is planned for being completely worked over 
with something much better for KDE 4)
