The problem was, it turns out that process_event() isn't responsible for displaying tooltips, there's instead a separate tooltips manager that also handles themes etc. Tooltips have to be registered when a ui object is created, in this case when the adv. preferences menu is being populated. For some reason we were always using the 'name' attribute there instead of 'description'.

In the advanced preferences, the help text at the bottom of the screen repeats the name of the hovered-over preference, whereas it should display its description instead.

The name and description parsing code in preferences_dialog::process_event() looks correct, however.
