STR:
1. Go to http://xkcd.com/1539/.
2. Move the mouse cursor over the image, then wait.
=> The alt text is displayed.
3. Move the mouse cursor again, but stay over the image.
=> No alt text is displayed.

I expect that the alt text is displayed again.

Neil, per bug 395668 / bug 532213 it seems this is by design and/or WONTFIX? Can we not do something cleverer here and reshow after a delay?

Tooltips should actually only hide when you move the mouse away from an element.
