Yes. For a long time, the key-combinations mentioned in my previous message 
have been hard-coded, for all comboboxes in the application.

Well, those would be bugs. I'll look into it.

Here at least, the tooltip goes away when the pointer moves from over the 
button to over the actual menu.

When you're sufficiently confident/familiar with the operation of the toolbar 
buttons, you can disable tooltips for the bar.

I think it was about 0.6.0 that the migration to "tab-like" operation for 
dirlines commenced. That was about 4 years ago, and I don't recall all the 
historical details.

The configuration options for pane1 and pane2 both include a choice to "show 
the pane... toolbar". It's not smart enough to always show the active-pane 

Long ago, there was some specific tailoring of the application for use on small 
screens. That required a build-time setting to be applied. We can revisit that, 
if there's much real interest in doing so.
