Me too.  Why stop displaying it after 10 seconds even?
That limit seems really arbitrary and annoying.

Exactly.  Why not keep displaying it until the user starts
typing or moves the mouse away from the tooltipped object?
After all, if the user has not yet done one of those things,
he or she is probably still reading the tooltip.
