I was rather thinking of the selected-window at the time the tooltip
frame is created (plus some way to re-set the "transient-for" field so
the same tooltip-frame can be reused?).

First we need to decide what's The Right Thing, and I think that keeping
track of the "parent" frame/window is the right thing.

Once we agree on this, we can think about how best to
implement/approximate it.
