I have a problem with tooltips. I have a drawing aread which I use to

single GtkWidget... GtkTipsQuery does not seem to fit my needs either.
What should be used in such context ?

I'm not sure what *should* be used before new tooltip code hits GTK+,
but I've always just re-implemented tooltips myself.  Creating a popup
window with a widget name of "gtk-tooltips" gives you access to the
style, and you just have to play with spacings and drawing.
