Thanks. Then I must say I do not understand how this works. As far as I see
for this to work reliably tooltip.el:tooltip-start-delayed-tip must record
the mouse position (because if the mouse has moved when the timer fires the
tooltip should not be shown). However it does not.

Could someone please try to explain this to me? Am I missing something here?
