Ok but when we apply panel parameter (disable/enable tooltips) it disables
enable tooltips globaly for all wigets and not just for kicker ! and vice
We use : QToolTip::setGloballyEnabled( _showToolTips );

After when we restart kde, kicker reapply its configuration when it launch and
style configuration is lose !

For me it's not good !
