1. If you experienced a crash or other abnormal behavior, please attach the log file '' by dragging it from your desktop onto the 'Attach File' button below.

This has been happening for a long time. Whenever I have the Beatunes App open, even in the background, the tooltips show up everywhere in every window on every app I use. I looked in the preferences, but there seems to be no way to turn them off -- like it is common in other apps. This is an obvious glitch and oversight that I've been ignoring, but it has become increasingly annoying since I'll be looking at a webpage and I'll click on a link and accidentally go to Beatunes instead.
Could this be fixed?

    Hey John,

    I have noticed this issue as well and it is indeed very annoying. Possibly it's a bug in the JDK—I will investigate.

    Quick question:

    It does not always happen, right? Only sometimes.
    Do you have any idea, under which conditions it happens?

    Hi Hendrik,

    Yep. Maybe a quick fix would be an option to turn them off in the preferences?
    Traktor has that option and I switch them off there since I already know what everything does.

    Enjoy the heat! :D

    This is true. I don’t see them right now and it is open.
    Maybe it was due to a restart of the app.

    Yeah. No idea under which conditions. This one is hard to reproduce.

    It is hard to reproduce, but it's still happening.

    It seems to happen more often if I'm multitasking and either having beaTunes doing something or an app with a table display like Finder, iTunes or Yate in the foreground and having that app doing something. In those cases, I'm frequently switching apps/windows. But I don't have a 100% way to make it happen or keep it from happening.
