That disqualifies the tooltip indeed, IMHO. If a user gets a tooltip by
using a shortcut he has to be able to close the tooltip again _always_
with the keyboard only too. At least add Esc-handling like the normal
completion has. And btw, if you find you have to do lots of things via
event-filtering, maybe you should think about wether your using the
right tool for the job...


It's all in the mind, ya know.
