[webkit-qt] Showing link target upon mouse hover over a link

my application wraps a subclassed QWebView inside a QScrollArea (this is required because I want to treat the whole rendered page and some custom QWidgets as a single scrollable entity). I would like to always show a tooltip with the link destination when user moves her mouse over a link.
Right now, I'm intercepting the QWebPage's linkHovered, that works. However, calling a QWebView::setToolTip(link) from a slot connected to that signal has no visible effect whatsoever, and if I try to use something like QToolTip::showText from the slot, I do get a tooltip at a correct position with a correct text, but it disappears after less than a second.
What am I doing wrong?
With kind regards,
