Steps to reproduce:

  . emacs -Q

  . Wait until the cursor stops blinking (after 10 blinks)

  . Click File on the menu bar and move the mouse to the first item

  . Wait for the help-echo tooltip to show up -- it doesn't

Disabling tooltip-mode (which shows help-echo in the echo area)
doesn't help.

You can see the same problem immediately if you disable
blink-cursor-mode, instead of waiting for the cursor to stop blinking.

I see the same problem in previous versions, if I disable
blink-cursor-mode.  However, since Emacs now stops blinking by
default, this will affect all the users, not just those who disable
blink-cursor-mode.
