C# AutoEllipsis property for Label not showing tooltip on Add-Ins?

I am hoping someone can confirm (or deny) this problem I am seeing:

I am using VS C# 2008 Express.

On all my Add-Ins that display a custom form, I have noticed that for any labels I have set AutoEllipsis to TRUE and AutoSize to FALSE, if the text overflows then the ellipsis is appended to the end of the truncated text -- however, the expected tooltip containing the complete text DOES NOT display.

If I call the same form from a test exe (not an Add-In), then it works as expected.

(I am also seeing some other subtle font painting differences, but one thing at a time...)
