No, I actually suspect it's a bug. Googling appears to show that this 
sometimes just "happens" with then all-new Kicker, and that the only "fix" 
anyone has come up with, is to turn the effect off (under Panels > 
Appearance-tab > uncheck "Enable Mouseover effects", FWIW).

There seems to be no entry in the Control Centre for applying any changes to 
this effect, at all. Also CC's "help" still lists "icon zooming" as an 
applicable effect, even though Aaron Seigo replaced "icon zooming" with this 
new visual-do-hickey. It doesn't matter much; it was just annoying during the 
time while I was still trying to work out how to either fix, or get rid of,
