Tray icons can't park in Kicker

I had a similar set of problems when I upgraded from KDE 3.1.3 to KDE 3.3.1.  
The cause in my case was a corrupted $HOME/.kde/share/config/kickerrc file.

Delete all applications on the kicker panel and then have a look at kickerrc 
You may well find some junk in the sections marked [ServiceButton_xx].  A 
[ServiceButton_xx] is created and deleted for each application docked / 
removed.  If all applications are deleted from kicker, there should be no 
entries under [ServiceButton_xx]. Note that applets like Login/Lock are 
located under [Applet_xx].

In addition, clear out the directory $HOME./kde/share/apps/kicker.

Hopes this helps.
