No, it's because x-show-tip _needs_ a frame on which to pop up the
tooltip.  And since tooltip-show doesn't accept a frame parameter, it
uses the selected frame.  But that's not why xg_hide_tooltip needs the
frame, it needs the frame to get at the tooltip widget.

Feel free to document that, but that's tangential to the issue being
discussed.

It would be better indeed to away with the global variables.  I'm just
saying that the mess with tip_frame on GTK could be solved even
without getting rid of global variables.
