Well, yes, but not the _launcher_ icons... The SYSTEM TRAY icons. Try and run 
kopete. It will put an icon in your system tray. Try running kget, kmail, 
korganizer.... THESE icons pop up windows that are inconsistent. For example, 
the kmail icon pops up a toolitp sayng "There are 24 unread messages", kopete 
pops up a tooltip saying "Jabber blahblah at blahblah.blahblah (online)", kgpg 
says "Kgpg - encryption tool" and so on...

It's these tootips that are annoying and not the launcher ones. 

If still in doubt, see this screenshot, where I have marked what icons we are 
talking about: http://www.di.uoa.gr/~grad0771/icons_that_popup.jpg [216KB]
Note: the popus are not shown in the screenshot :-)
