User(s) can reproduce this bug
If you create a CMFCRibbonButton and you set bAlwaysShowDescription = 1 in the constructor, then a tooltip won't be shown when executed.
Visual Studio 2008 SP1
Operating System Language
Steps to Reproduce
Create a CMFCRibbonButton in a ribbon application. Set bAlwaysShowDescription = 1 in the constructor.
change new CMFCRibbonButton(ID_EDIT_PASTE, strTemp, 0, 0);
to new CMFCRibbonButton(ID_EDIT_PASTE, strTemp, 0, 0, 1);
When executed, the tooltip will never be shown for those buttons.
Tooltips should show for all objects.

Thanks for the report. According to our investigation, this is not a bug – this property is intended for the second-level application menu items (such as “Print Preview” in MS Word) where the tooltip shouldn’t be displayed.
