Try: main menu -> system -> administration -> network  Press the 'Unlock' Button and then on 'Details'.
You should see something unreadable next to 'Action:'

I was talking about the 'Appearance' dialogue. Fun thing is that it is gone now, the default is the mixing console now.

Well, since UbStu already ships only an rt-kernel and does about everything else, why not do this as well?

By 'tool tip' I meant the tool tip in the main menu. The thing that gives a short description on the application.
I noticed the lack of such a tool tip for:
