Bug report #11611
Hovering text for Icons overruns box edges, when font size is changed

Using QGIS 2.6, I increased the font size:
(Settings-->Options-->General-->FontSize) to 11
However, the hovering text for Icons does not allow for increasing the size of its box, and therefore the hover text.
Some accommodation should be allowed for increasing this size.
I am on a Win8 device, and from time to time, I adjust the underlying system font size, (accessed in ControlPanel, for its various constituents) to accommodate my aging eyes. In other applications, this does not present a problem. Currently, I notice that the QGIS FontSize setting, down (back down...?) to 8 or 9 allows sufficient space for the hover text (I don't recall what the default setting for QGIS was. I did not notice this bug until I changed the QGIS font.
I assume, therefore, that the bug fix whould be aware of both the underlying system's forced sizing, and the changes encountered by the QGIS change.
I noticed this bug the CleanLook application style, and also the default Plastique
