What I can assume that might be causing the losing of tooltips is that you have put the calendar in an update panel - if so, please make sure that the tooltip manager is also in the same update panel and test again. If this does not help, please prepare some sample reproduction page and post it here and I will built up a test demo based on it and I will do my best to help.
