      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      1.5.0

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows XP

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      None

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The setTooltipText() nolonger works under 1.5, which works fine under 1.4. In order to show the tool tip text under 1.5, the panel where the component reside has to get focused.The following is a simple test program. If you comiple
      and run this under 1.5 (Tiger), you'll see that tool tip text only shows up on the button where the jdialog gets focus. The tool tip text will not show on the button where the jdialog is not focused.

      If you try the program using 1.4, both buttons will show the tool tip text regardless if the jdialog gets focus. This is certainly a bug in the basic GUI
      component in 1.5 and should be fixed easily since it works under 1.4.
