What is this supposed to give you. I get a Very long tooltip box with:
tip with a
line and a newline
then, when the mouse starts moving, I get a tip that is just the right size to hold the two coords, each on their own line.
That initial tooltip never shows up for me, which I think is the correct behaviour, so I just put whatever in there to make it a really long line to get around the wx bug.
Also, disables the tooltip when the mouse moves off of the axes, which prevents stray tooltips from hanging around.
this doesn't work for me either. If that code in enables, the tip goes away and does not come back at all.
I guess I'll make a non-MPL version, and send a note to the wxPython list.
Cool. Yeah, I don't think wx gets as much testing on GTK as it does on Windows.
