So in 4.0, there's a bug with the cogwheel mouse icon.  This can effect Headless Horseman a lot.  There's a script here to turn off tooltips and then another to turn them back on.  Props to Frejya for the original post.

Turn Off Tooltips
/script GameTooltip.Temphide = function() GameTooltip:Hide() end; GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Temphide);
 
Turn On Tooltips
/script GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Show);

These can also be assigned to a macro if you prefer.  I just copy and paste them into a chat window though.

I hit that bug on my first trip to the Horseman, but since I've been using that script, I haven't had a problem.

For all I know, this has been fixed.  I've been using the script every time though just in case and have had no problems.

I went in today and didn't use the script.  Seems fixed.

I tried it without yesterday and it didn't crash, but it did lock up for about 20 seconds.

Try http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info18399-Tooltipfix.html until blizzard gets off their asses.

Ya.  I've frozen a time or two as well now trying it without the script.  I'll have to take a look at the addon.  My current tooltip addons aren't working like they did pre-4.0.

According to patch notes it got fixed today.  I haven't remembered to disable the mod yet, though, so I don't know.
