      Description

      A Java Applet extends JApplet and uses a JLabel with a ToolTipText.
      When the applet is run in an IE browser, the JLabel does show the
      ToolTip just fine, when moving the mouse over the JLabel text.
      After a refresh of applet however, the ToolTip is only shown as a
      small bar located below the cursor, containing no more text. This
      behavior persists until the browser is restarted.

      The behavior was introduced in Java SE 6 Update 22, and is
      reproducible with Java SE 6 Update 23.
      Java SE 6 Update 18, 19, 20, 21 were fine in this respect.

      The incorrect behavior is reproducible on:
      - Windows XP SP2
      - IE 7.0.5730.13
      - Java SE 6 Update 22 (b04)
      and
      - Windows Vista Enterprise SP1
      - IE 8.0.6001.18943
      - Java SE 6 Update 22 (b04)
      and was also reported for
      - IE 6
