You are right. A "(require 'tooltip)" was missing in dabbrev-hover.el. It
is odd that there was no missing function error (it failed silently).

Now it works in the sense that instead of showing a "real" tooltip it
prints "Error while displaying tooltip: (void-function x-show-tip)" in
the minibuffer for half a second and then shows the possible expansion
(also in the minibuffer).
