      Description

      Tool windows should hide by default when the app is no longer the frontmost app.
      this worked up to Qt 5.11.
      The doc for Qt::WindowFlags Qt::Tool says:

      Indicates that the widget is a tool window. /* ... */ By default, tool windows will disappear when the application is inactive. This can be controlled by the Qt::WA_MacAlwaysShowToolWindow attribute.

      but: it does not disappear
      and: there is no Qt::WA_MacAlwaysShowToolWindow to correct it...
