this is the short info window, that wont vanish

Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.4.5) 
OS:                Linux

When hovering mouse over date & time in panel a small window appears, that does not vanish anymore. I have to move the mouse again to an item in the panel (no matter which), until the short info is showed. Then the date & time window gets 

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Steps to reproduce:

1. Move the mouse over date & time in the panel
2. Let it rest there until a small window appears showing date & time
3. As soon as it appears, move the mouse away

The window will stay there (see the screenshot i added).

But you have to try a couple of times to see this bug appear. I tried to count the seconds, but it was not possible for me to tell the exact time needed for it. I think it is the moment when the window tries to appear, and while it does, I already move the mouse away, so it gets stuck. It seems to work best, when you do need less than a single second to let the window appear, and then move the mouse away. But this bug only appears, when hovering the mouse over date & time, and seems not to occur, when hovering over other panel-items.

My settings for date and time show also the seconds. My settings to panel allow other windows to overlap it. See screenshot for my settings. 

Actual Results:  
The short info stayed forever, until I hovered the mouse over another item.

Expected Results:  
The short info should vanish after a while.

My widget style is slim glow. My panel allows other windows to overlap it and comes to front when moving the mouse to the bottom.

don't read in plasmarc EVERY time a tooltip is shown, and be careful to stop the show timer always

there are still some issues with QGraphicsView not sending hover events in all cases, but this is
as good as it gets if we ignore those bugs in Qt.
