 I agree and so I propose to fix this in the following way: if the mouse is
inside the control when Shift+F1 is pressed, show help at its position.
Otherwise, show help "near" the control: by default, position it just under
it but place it above instead if it wouldn't fit on screen otherwise (this
is a bit tricky as I don't know right now how to get the size of the
tooltip window).

 If you don't object to this, I'm going to try to modify wxMSW to behave
like this soon.
