How can I make tooltips stop popping up in Finder list view?

When I put a Finder window into list view, and the file name is too long to fit into the column width, the Finder pops up a yellow tooltip with the full name. The delay is too short and it gets in the way. I've found a way to disable tooltips in all Cocoa applications (or set the delay to long enough that it's not a bother) but not for the Finder. Does anyone know the secret command to do this?

"There is a way to increase the delay.

Open the terminal and type: defaults write -g NSInitialToolTipDelay -int 10000
the value is passed in milliseconds
