as an experienced user, i can tell you that having tooltips floating 
around for 5 seconds is a real inconvenience...

and occasional users won't see (click-away-syndrome, needing more than 5 
seconds to read them) and probably won't understand them.

personally, i keep on thinking that tooltips, and popups in general, are 
not a good solution for warnings.

as soon as we have the new properties palette, i will try to come up 
with a prototype for a warning / information / status palette...
