"Popups" or "mouseovers" - the difference being that Popups should stay on-
screen until you take some action.  I don't get any popups, but I do get 
mouseovers for anything on the panel, and I am sure there's a config option.

Unfortunately, I went looking and while I didn't find it, I did discover a 
global option to set icons to display without text.  "ooh - shiny!"  
Naturally I clicked on it, since I always turn the text off to make room for 
more icons on a toolbar, and then clicked on "apply", and both screens went 
white (after a brief interlude showing the KDM background).  I ended up 
having to restart KDM...

... so no, I don't know where that option is :-)
