.NET 6, WPF: the ToolTip doesn't work on ComboBoxItem

Hi,

In .NET 6, the tooltip of the ComboBoxItem doesn't work if the ComboBox is inside of a UserControl.
It shows up for about 500ms and then it disappears.
Setting explicitly the 'ToolTipService.ShowDuration' doesn't help.
You can find below the xaml for the UserControl and for the Window. The root namespace(the project name) is "ToolTipTest".
Can somebody help me out?
