Reopening this ticket as it's still not fixed in latest release/beta
Bug can be seen only on WinXP, on Win7 it's OK.
Now I tested it on WinXP/Win7 with these two latest release/beta versions.

Here is link to my topic about this bug:

Bug isn't in - based on information from this bug ticket
Bug is in on XP SP3 (trancexx)
--> so it was introduced in version or

Here is my simple test script:

GUICreate("ToolTip bug", 400, 300) 
GUICtrlCreateLabel('Test1', 10,10,100,25) 
GUICtrlSetTip(-1,'tip 1') 
GUICtrlCreateLabel('Test2', 10,50,100,25) 
GUICtrlSetTip(-1,'tip 2') 
While 1     
  If GUIGetMsg() = -3 Then ExitLoop

This is a bug in common controls on XP. Due to some recent changes in how controls are done I may be able to fix this now. Reopening for reference.
