    Since I am not the author of the last sentence, I don't know what it was
    intended to warn against.  I tried to use a bad value on X, and the
    resulted effect is the mouse pointer covering part of the tooltip window.
    Also moving the mouse causes flickering of the tooltip window.  I have no
    idea how to describe this behavior in the doc string.

Could you change that to say "or it may interfere with clicking where
you wish".

    BTW, on non-toolkit X builds using tooltips on menu items completely
    garbles them.

I don't understand.  Could you please say more specifically
how they get garbled?

    Most likely this is caused by garbage collection, and
    displaying tooltips makes GC to occur sooner than when tooltips are

I don't follow the connection.  What does GC have to do with garbling

Are you using a mode in which the tooltip appears in the echo area?
