Gnome 1.4 positions its tooltips below the mouse pointer and centered,
everything else I have seen positions them below and to the right (the
start of the text is actually aligned with the LHS of the pointer in
sawfish, I can't check anything else right now). Only Emacs positions
tooltips above the mouse. I think below is less likely to be in the
way, since the pointer usually points upwards. So my suggestion would
be to default to 

(setq tooltip-x-offset 0)
(setq tooltip-y-offset 40)
