Same thing for File > Preferences... > User Interface > Interactivity > "Time before resize or move starts"

Reason (?): in the source file prefs_userinterface.cpp those tooltips are set as follows: tr( "" ) with nothing inside

1) Remove empty tooltips
2) Add text to the tooltip

The entries that have the empty tooltip do not have one in 1.4.4, so I'll upload a .patch file in case the solution choosen is 1 (to save time).

The tooltips are in the UI files, and at least the ones in the first part of this bug are in the ui files. It could relate to translation.. not sure.

I was using the patch uploaded without reverting the file to the official one and seems to work.
Any other ideas on how to fix this issue?

Yes, I confirm. When hovering over these options empty rectangles appead (empty tooltips)

What should these tooltips be ?

I think this patch is correct after playing a bit trying to fix 0012507.
Some tooltips are in .ui files and some others are in .cpp files.
(Example: prefs_pdfexport.cpp and prefs_externaltoolsbase.ui)

I applied your patch, thanks! Rather than removing the faulty lines, I just commented them out however as we might want some tooltip for those checkboxes ultimately.

Thanks jghali!
Fixed in 1.5.0.svn (19468).
