Setting Tooltip for Control

Hi all,

working on some JavaFX Demo, I tried to reduce blocking the
FxApplication-Thread by doing initialization stuff on not added
controls / nodes off the FXApp-Thread.

I though I remembered that this one of the major advantages of FX, if
a node does not belong to the scenegraph you are free to modify it on
any thread. Is this correct? If yes - than it is probably wrong that
trying to set the Tooltip on a control gives me an error, wrong thread
for a control not already added to the scenegraph.

So the question is - expected behaviour or issue?
