pop-up help = hints

Hints are shown when NetBeans first starts executing.
Once the NetBeans main window loses focus, IE if I open a mail client or
open NetBeans 'Open Project' dialog box, Hints are no longer shown.

Until I click on the Textual menu bar. I don't have to select an
action. But hinting starts working again. Until I select another
applications' window. Then it stops working again.


BTW, I don't have this problem with LibreOffice. I can shift away from
that application. Then back again. And it's hints work fine.
