I've fine-tuned the behaviour several times in the past few days, so it is 
relevant to refer to lasting changeset ids as usual.  The justification 
for the latter detail is here:

changeset:   49727:2fe56b600698
user:        wenzelm
date:        Sun Oct 07 16:15:31 2012 +0200
files:       src/Tools/jEdit/src/isabelle_rendering.scala 
make buttons closer to original mouse position;

Linux does not have any standards for placement of window control element, 
so I ignored that aspect above; the mouse movement was taken as decisive. 
I still get occasionally confused after trying to move the tooltip with 
its titel bar.  There is also the confusion when the detached tooltip has 
become a jEdit dockable and the user tries to clone it: the result is 
perfectly correct wrt. the dockable window model, but still confusingly 

Nonetheless, the basic functionality should work now without big 
surprises, like a tooltip stack that cannot be closed at all. (This is 
Isabelle/e3945ddcb9aa at the moment.)
