  >   Omitting the problem tooltip if it's large makes it a bit unpredictable to the user. He/she then won't know in advance whether hovering over a location that might show a combined tooltip will actually show it or not.
  True, which is why I wouldn't have thought of combined popups myself (and planned to remove those initially). But I'm not sure what's worse, often getting a wall-of-text-in-your-face popup or not being entirely certain what you'll get. You'd always get the information that changes as a function of where on the line you hover (the decl. popup), and I think this is a feature that users learn about while using the product anyway.
  I'd have to use my version a bit longer on my large screen to see how I react to this aspect; it could be an additional argument in favour of putting the decl. popup in top (because it's the part that changes).
