[Glade-devel] Glade-3 bug, or wrong understanding of what should happen ?

I am trying to understand why in glade-3, for a GtkButton, in the 
Properties window, the tooltip shows wrongly for the property 'stock 
button' : it shows the text "This only applies with stock type buttons". 
This seems to be coming from glade-gtk.c, line 2951. However, in 
gtk+.xml there is an apparent 'override' (?) :

<glade-widget-class name="GtkButton" generic-name="button" title="Button">
   <property save="False" id="stock" name="Stock Button">
     <tooltip>The stock item for this button</tooltip>
So one would expect the tooltip to textually read "The stock item for 
this button". How come it doesn't read like it ? Because if one looks in 
glade-3 some properties further down, the property called "response-id" 
is correctly reflected in glade-3 (according to gtk+.xml's contents) :
   <property ignore="True" id="response-id" default="0" common="False" 
name="Response ID">
     <tooltip>The response ID of this button in a dialog (it's NOT 
useful if this button is not in a GtkDialog)</tooltip>

Is this a bug ? Or is this some combination of tags (and their values) 
that makes the gtk+.xml- file's text not to be considered ? If it is a 
bug, where is it eventually to be corrected (knowing it may eventually 
make me find new similar bugs) ? Where is this behaviour described ?

Its not a bug - currently we use a mechanism that allows us to
make some properties insensitive - and we use an "insensitive tooltip"
override to communicate the reason to the user, agreed that
both informations should be available to the user, maybe we can
improve that somehow when we rework the property editor.
