I tried the single GtkWindow instance but it exhibited the same issue we are
having (i.e., same behaviour as current implementation).

I must admit that my patch is a band-aid as I can't seem to find a better way
using the existing (2.12) tooltips API to fix the issue. It seems that the only
way to interact with the tooltip properly is to connect to the
GtkWidget::query-tooltip signal as per documentation of GtkTooltip. But sending
query-tooltip seems to duplicate functionality with ChromeClient::setToolTip
(in terms of saying "show me a tooltip"), at least AFAIC.

I hope that clears things a bit.
