I cannot reproduce this error. Could you check to see if there is any error in the log file? Also, could you please attach the project you are using for testing?

nothing in the log
moving the blocks clears the problem
manually added cursor back to screenshot
the 3 left blocks hover as 'top of stack' but the pop from heap block to the right has hover help

Another help issue:
the Help (?) button seems to be only a hover point, that is clicking it doesnt seem to do anything. But if you change secondary toolbar, the hover you get at (?) doesnt refresh till you click it. It would be more consistent if its hover always displayed help for the current toolbar

Got it. Here is what is happening:

After you restore the collapsed stack, the top-of-stack block is ahead of the other blocks in the list, so it is found first when the cursor is over the rectangle that bounds the block. So I need to check to see if I am hitting a transparent area (which I do when testing for clicks).

Please try applying this patch to It seems to fix the bug but I wonder if it is not too slow?

How do I download the patched file from git? Source Tree includes line numbers and formatting, download master as tar.gz gives a 1 byte file. The patch is a little long to hand edit, that may be what I have done before, can't remember.

clone the git of the Turtle, in a terminal, make:

git clone git://

In the mainline folder there are all turtle's files..

Thanks Walter and AlanJAS
The patch fixes the problem
No noticable delay on XO1.5 for the hoverhelp to appear. Is that what you mean by too slow? If it has slowed the execution of a stack then it might be too high a price to pay?
