Unfortunately, what oli suggests only applies to tool-tips for panel
applets (that you add with "Add to Panel") not to things on the
workplace switcher and the window list. Tool-tips for the workplace
switcher seem especially dumb to me -- "Click to start dragging ...." I
guess it is a Gnome thing. Maybe it will go away with Gnome 3.0.
