Actually a complete solution was even easier. First I noticed that a Java app I use (muCommander) also retreats from displaying tooltips when the app is inactive. Then a Google search gave me this JDK bug report [1]. And once the SWP_NOOWNERZORDER flag was mentioned, the rest was a walk in a park.

Double checking what flags others use for their tooltips revealed nothing more, see this for example [3].

Attaching a patch that applies this flag to our tooltip SetWindowPos [2] invocations, in w32fns.c. Works for me. Tested on trunk and emacs24.

If you agree, I might commit this to emacs24.
