Never mind -- after I spent hours poring over the JS, it turned out  
the problem was badly nested labels in the HTML.

I did learn something that might be of use to someone:

<tip type="jQuery">

When a jQuery "click" event is attached to an element with an  
associated "<label>", a single click will cause the function to be  
called twice.
