Not a 2.5.0 blocker.

I have fresh install on a new system since this bug was reported. Ubuntu version was 11.10, I'll have to search Ubuntu repo history to be sure what GTK+ version for my 64-bit Intel setup. I think it was GNOME 2D desktop manager. According to launchpad: GTK+3 version was 3.1.6; GTK+2 version was 2.24.5; GTK+ version was 1.2.10-18 but unused after Karmic (I was on Oneiric) at the date of original report.

What was the gtk+ version when this happened? Sounds like gtk+, and not necessarily freeciv, bug. We may are clear already by having minimum gtk3 requirement higher than the buggy versions.

As a gtk3 bug, setting a release target of 2.4.0 for now (it seems unlikely to be trunk-specific).

I've only had this happen once and I haven't been able to recreate it yet. I have a tooltip stuck on my screen by middle-clicking twice by mistake. It seems that the tooltip referenced itself as parent when calculating z-index and was not undrawn from the screen when I tried to dismiss it. I expect logging out of the os will fix it.
