I don't use the show uid option as well :-). The tooltip I'm referring 
to is the one that appears in the extJS tree when dragging a page. This 
tooltip shows visually if a page can be dropped (for instance when 
somebody does not have the rights to add pages to a certain page it 
shows a 'forbidden' icon) and uses some icons to clearify where you drop 
the page. You can't drop a map on a page that is a subpage of this map, 
or you have to copy it, otherwise the parent is gone. It's more user 

I don't want auto-expansion of the tree.
Right now you have to expand the tree manually if the page you want to 
drop on is not visible in the tree. Why not do this automated, like 
operating systems do? Users are used to this behaviour and expect it to 
work like this. In my opinion we have to stick to some default behaviour 
of operating systems. It's about what users are familiar with, not what 
we like. The road to 4.5 is about usability, and this is a good example.
