ErrorProvider tooltip display problem


I have problem with a C# Win Forms app that uses the ErrorProvider class to
provide input validation feedback to the user. On my development workstation
(WinXP Pro + Visual Studio .NET 2003), when I run the app by itself or from
VS in debug, everything works fine... the ErrorProvider tooltips display
correctly, etc. However, on other systems (e.g., Win 2003 Server, or even
another PC running XP Pro), after the app enters validation mode (if any
required fields are empty), the error tooltips don't display at all when the
pointer is hovered on the error icon. Furthermore, if the error icon is
located close to the lower or rightmost edge of the form, it looks like the
tooltip is actually being displayed behind the form, since a portion of the
tooltip text is visible in the area just beyond the edge of the form. Is this
a Microsoft bug that has been fixed recently via Windows Update? Would this
explain why the problem does not exist on my workstation, but does on others.
I haven't found any posts thus far for this and would appreciate very much
any help.

My development PC has:
Visual Studio .NET 2003 version 7.1.3088
..NET Framework 1.1.4322
WIndows XP Pro (2002), SP1
