LibreOffice 6.2 Calc does not display comments

I've just upgraded LO 6.1 to 6.2. When I open existing spreadsheets, something is going on with the cell comments.

Cells which formerly had comments still have the little red indicator box (it looks slightly different) but when I mouse over the comment the contents of the comment do not display. If I select "show comment" then the comment displays permanently. But if I select "hide comment" not only does the comment go away, but the red indicator disappears.

The comment is still there -- I can turn it back on -- but without the indicator showing it will become difficult to remember which cells have comments in them.

I would like to restore the function where a mouseover of the comment indicator reveals the comment's contents. Also, I would like the red comment indicator to continue to show even when "hide comments" is selected. According to help, Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> General -> Help -> Extended Tips when it is on will show both tool tips and comments. However, even though the tool tips show up, the comments don't.

Any way I can fix this?
