    Tool Tips Hidden

    I am having some problems with the Tool Tip popups -- they are popping up behind the toolbars, icon bars, task bar, etc. instead of in front. I can see that they are popping up because the edges of the box are just barely visible most times, peeking out from behind. The only thing that I have set to "always on top" is the task bar, but this never was a problem before. What could be going wrong?

    There are a couple of things I recall that can affect tooltips:
    1] Certain kinds of screensaver (I think the type that uses Direct3D?)
    2] Some settings in transition control (Display Properties | Effects)

    I've seen this twice before. In both cases I deactivated the toolbars (unselected them under the Tools Menu) then reactivated them. The problem stopped but I don't know why.
