Like Anthony already found out, even if it's white on screen it really 
is a very light shade of yellow. You can see this by adjusting the 
brightness of your screen but with a laptop that's a bit more difficult. 
I've seen multiple times, especially with laptops, that you can't see 
these subtle colors. (For me, with a desktop-screen, the difference is 
really visible)

If you don't want to change your theme you can change it in the source 
of Lazarus itself. But your other programs will keep a white hint. I 
don't know how to make a clearer border but the color is here:

// Color := clInfoBk;
Color := clYellow; // <- for instance

But clInfoBk is used a lot more throughout the Lazarus IDE so it might 
be better to change your theme. Maybe somebody else could hunt down the 
border-drawing for this tooltip (which i couldn't find off hand).
