In addition to what Gaetano points out with his code, I followed up
trying to make it behave more like a true statusmessage, by release it
using this total code to display it and also to remove it from
displaying in the status bar.

    function STOPTIMER_PB_onMouseOut(flags, col, row)
       this.statusmessage = ""

    function STOPTIMER_PB_onMouseOver(flags, col, row)
       this.statusmessage = this.speedtip

The focus still stays on the object, especially a pushbutton, until you
move to another control in your app, or the IDE to take the focus
elsewhere, at least it won't be hanging on in the status bar and
confusing users.
