Hello guys,

I am using XS on my MacBook Pro with an external monitor. The dock is located on the second monitor which is located right to the Mac. If I hover over some code the tooltip seems to be created in the top left corner of the first screen (Mac) as a small rectangle. After that it is moved to the mouse location. The effect is quite noticable and a bit irritating.

This looks like it's because the TooltipInformationWindow does ShowAll in its ctor. It shouldn't be shown until it's moved to the correct location.

The tooltip window is no longer shown in the constructor, and appears on the right screen for me. Marking as resolved.
