I think any slowness to create windows would not be perceptable, as it
would just mean a slightly longer delay before the tooltip pops
up. The perceived slowness I think is the delay between window
creation and drawing its contents. We might be able to hide the
tooltip window until it is completely drawn so the user does not see

But the other problem of focus changing when tooltips pop up is more
urgent, I think.
