Bug: Problem with "Script.Status" in plugins

In one of my plugins, I use "Script.Status" to output text in the Editor statusbar.

When I invoke the plugin using hotkey, the text is displayed correctly and is removed again when I move the cursor outside the editing panel.
But when I invoke the plugin from menu, the text is instantly removed. (Maybe because the editing panel is not active at this time?)

It's because every time the cursor is moved over various elements, it displays Tooltip information in the statusbar. All toolbar/menu items have tooltips so that's probably why. You should probably only use Status text only where this does not get in a way.
