3.0.0devel is a development-only version known to have numerous bugs
and issues.  Bug reports for 3.0.0devel should be accompanied with a
patch.  It is far from ready for general consumption.  We will be
making prereleases, announcing a general testing period, or some
similar action when it gets closer to practical release.

The solution to buggy tooltip display is not disabling tooltips, it's
fixing the bug.
