Dear platform experts,

we're currently preparing the EclEmma plug-in to become part of the next Eclipse release train. For this we did several quality checks for Eclipse 4.6 and encountered the following issue:

For most of our contributed menu items we now get unwanted tooltips on the menu items:

1) These tooltips are useless, as they just repeat the menu label
2) These tooltips are inconsistent, as many IDE menus do not show them
3) Tooltips in menu items from parameterized commands show empty parenthesis ()

All our menu items are contributed as commands. It looks like this problem was also discovered in the platform:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=491990

Any ideas how to properly avoid these tooltips? The only solution I found so far is to add

tooltip=""

to all our command definitions.

Cheers,
-marc
