I get the problem in Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog ( 2.16.10 I think), with a
normal mpl pylab figure in GTKAgg. It is hard to see with normal
figure sizes, because the tooltips by default appear below the toolbar
and thus do not occlude the FigureCanvas, but if you resize the figure
so that it takes up the entire vertical extent of the desktop, and
then hover over the toolbar, the tooltips will occlude the canvas and
will expose the bug -- no pun intended The basic problem is that
the area occluded by the tooltip is not redrawn when, for example, you
hover over a different toolbar button.
