It's the source of your problem. Try removing the MouseOver and MouseOut 
parameters from your widget definition in your template. It will work again.

The MapTips widget use JavaScript to build the MapTips on the map. By 
default it provides you functions to show the information. You can 
redefine those functions and define your own by using the MouseOver and 
MouseOut widget parameters and adding the JavaScript functions to your 
template. If you check the sample templates in Chameleon, you will have 
an example of that.
