What is the source of the saying “שאלת חכם חצי תשובה”?

The earliest source that I am aware of is Rav Shlomo Ibn Gevirol in his sefer מבחר הפנינים, although he phrases it slightly differently, “שאלת החכם חצי חכמה”. It is frequently mentioned in seforim of She’alos ve’tshuvos such as the Noda Beyehuda and Chasam Sofer as a way of showing respect for the person who presented the question.
