Description

There are two areas in Chirp where a simple filename is used for ID. On the editor tab, and the recent files list.

It's possible to have the same name appear multiple times, but originating from different locations, ie the same filename is located in different locations on disk, but both or more, show up in the list of recent files or on the open editor tabs.

Tooltips that provide the location information would help in knowing which item is referenced.
This is a User Interface change.

Similar development for the py3 branch is in progress.
