[06:47:10] <vultraz> JyrkiVesterinen: https://gna.org/bugs/index.php?22176 AFAIK this is still an issue. Aginor said it's because tooltips are displayed in popup 'windows' and as such set the is_in_dialog flag. Need some way to not set is_in_dialog for tooltips and for dropdown menus, but I can't figure out a good way.

I think this can be fixed by allowing multiple dialogs to be shown at once, and only clearing is_in_dialog when they all have been closed.

While testing bug #24532 I noticed this one was still occurring. It also occurs with notifications like 'planning mode activated/deactivated', etc.

It's worth noting that this affects gui2::tchat_log's Previous/Next page buttons and their tooltips, which aren't commented out. I may opt for #ifdef'ing out the tooltips if you consider fixing this bug unfeasible for 1.12.

If a GUI2 widget has a tooltip associated to it, on mouse-over the tooltip may cause all visible map labels and console/chat backlog lines to glitch through the dialog's contents. They also disappear from view once the tooltip does. Additionally, if the dialog doesn't occupy the entire screen and there are labels or chat lines outside the dialog frame, triggering and dismissing the tooltip repeatedly will cause labels and chat lines to be overpainted outside the frame.

This may be reproduced by editing the Gamestate Inspector dialog definition to apply a tooltip to the Copy-to-clipboard button. Enable the commented-out tooltip attribute around line 242 of data/gui/default/window/gamestate_inspector.cfg:

Then launch Wesnoth on the test scenario (`wesnoth -dt`), use the :inspect console command to display the Inspector dialog, and move the mouse pointer over the button with the Copy icon near the inspect contents panel.

The attached screenshot shows an example of the situation when the dialog takes up the whole screen.
