In gcli.properties, the following string is defined:

# LOCALIZATION NOTE (eagerHelperDesc): Short description of the 'eagerHelper'
# setting. Displayed when the user asks for help on the settings.
eagerHelperDesc=How eager are the tooltips

I don't know how other localizers got around this, but I must say that at least for me, it's not easy to understand what this message means. Can we have it a bit more descriptive, please? How about "How often should the tooltips be shown"?

Missing period ... I hate myself, I hate myself, I hate myself.
