Default ControlTip Text in SubForms

Does anyone know why the controltip text will not pop up if the control is inside a subform? That is most often the case even if I click on the control itself and hover. Is something else overriding it, e.g. the lack of a controltip text for the actual subform itself? How can I overcome this?

I'm using Access XP (2002) SP-2.

I put a controltip text on a subform and it worked fine. I'm using 2003, maybe that makes a difference.

It does take a second for the text to pop up, but that might just be the speed of my computer.
