This issue is very similar to bug 321778, but it affects the status bar's tooltip text (which is shown if the full string doesn't fit in the available space).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create file named "Tes<font color=red>t test test test test test"
2. Select it
3. Resize window so that the text doesn't fully fit in the status bar
3. Hover on the status bar
The tooltip shows "Test test test test test test", and everything starting from the fourth letter is red.
The filename should not be interpreted as HTML

This fixes the same issue as 4450f8449af91e491636728a4669e2a9e27b49fa,
but for the status bar's tooltip text.
