A bit more information on the tooltip problems.  Tooltips work intermittently
for me.  It seems that when I drag a new actor from the tree onto the canvas,
tooltips no longer display for any actor when hovering over the actor's ports. 
However, after hitting the 'Run' button on the toolbar (even if the run ends up
in an Exception), the tooltips start working again.  This argues to me that this
is a Ptolemy or Kepler problem.  Maybe the drag and drop operation changes the
state of the event listeners to not notice the hover events.  Or something like
that.  Maybe hitting run causes the event listeners to be reset.  This can
probably be tracked down in a debugger pretty easily by watching the event
generation and consumption in various situations.
