A 'child' window is a window inside of the main application, a desktop windows (although initiated by and part of the same application) is not inside of the main application.

I am not personally sure if the best solution would be not showing tips when a desktop window is active (treat it as if mirc is still active application), or to treat it differently since the main application can be hidden/minimized while the mire deskstop window is still active.

So maybe the best solution is to put the behavior in the users hands, add an option in the tips configuration dialog to toggle this behavior.
