You might want to offer your comments on how (you think that) Kicker 
should work, but this isn't a bug.

Changing the properties of a menu item with the Menu Editor will not 
change the properties of an icon on a Kicker Panel.  There are two ways 
of placing an icon for an application on a Kicker Panel, these are 
inconsistent with each other, but in both cases, once you place the item 
on the Kicker Panel, you should not consider it to be linked with the 
menu item.  To change the properties of an icon on a Kicker Panel, you 
need to right click it and select: "Properties".
