Basically, because there is a very nasty bug caused by lack of proper 
awareness between kicker and kdesktop. You can work around it by selecting 
the option to allow windows to cover the panel. This stops interaction 
between kicker & kdesktop pushing your icons around. It probably will still 
be there in KDE 3.5, but KDE 4 plans to abolish it utterly by tighter 
integration and communication between desktop components.

Wish I had a better answer for you!
