When sizing a component on a JFrame, if the mouse cursor is moved off the designer window, the size tool tip box jumps away from the mouse cursor and can be completely off the Application. 

See attached screenshot.

Reproducible and interesting. The ToolTipManager seems to be confused when we are forcing it to show a tooltip when the mouse cursor is out of the HandleLayer, see HandleLayer.showToolTip.
