      Description


      In ToolTipManager.java when a WindowPopup is created, the constraints are not set, so MS JVM has a problem. I have the fix. ( I also need to fix the use of WindowPopup vs PanelPopup, so this problem happens on Applications, and certain cases when Applets use JFrames/JDialogs).

      If I call setToolTipText for any JComponent objet, then I get below
      exception when Swing tries to display ToolTip. The ToolTip looks like
      gray rectangle, without text.
      BorderLayout: cannot add to layout: unknown constraint: null
      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: null source
