Hovering and Tooltips are exclusive?

I have discussed this previously (months ago) with the javafx team,
including John Smith and a JavaFX team member, in this mailing list, I
think we all agreed this should be changed.
Unfortunately nothing seems to have come from this. I think there is a
communication problem in this mailing list. At least for me, about more
than 1/2 of my messages get ignored or nothing comes out of them.

Right now the tooltip shows up right below the mouse which issues a mouse
exited and disables mouse hover on the node in question which on a couple
of cases isn't the desired effect.

Thanks, best regards,
