JSI Tip 10031. Tooltips for some taskbar icons are hidden behind the taskbar on Windows XP?

When you move the mouse over the Windows XP taskbar icons, some tooltips are hidden by the taskbar.

This behavior will occur if you right-click in the Start menu's My Documents or My Recent Documents folder and Open a file.

NOTE: Microsoft is aware of this issue.

To workaround this behavior, log off and log on.
