This appears to happen about here in "sidebar_widget.cpp:

		QString icon = confFile->readEntry("Icon");
		if (!icon.isEmpty())
					 confFile->readEntry("Name"), i);
		} else {
			menu->insertItem(confFile->readEntry("Name"), i);

I see no conditional based on something in:


So, it appears that it isn't configurable.

And, yes I think that it is a NON-feature.  It should be possible to turn it off.

This has NOT changed in KDE-3.3.0BETA1 so I would add a WishList item:


And/Or, you can post a small rant on <kde-usability at kde.org>.

Sorry that I couldn't tell you how to fix it without changing the code.
