user32: search more aggressively for a window under a tooltip

When you say that this can't be fixed, do you mean that we can't
properly route a mouse event if the window is transparent and it
covers a window from another process? Well I'm not sure if Windows
does that either. However, we don't need any X11 support to forward
the message to another window on the same thread, and the applications
in question need only that.

If we can make these applications work, why don't we?
