Thanks--now I can fish! ;-)
Seriously, that worked well--the parameter I need to adjust is
AutoHideDelay under [General] in ~/.kde/kickerrc.
Unfortunately, it seems to be settable only in increments of 1 second--I
tried setting it to 0.1 and to 1/10, and neither of those worked (and,
somehow, both of those were interpreted as a setting of 3 seconds--or
maybe that's a default).
Now I'm googling for AutoHideDelay to find out if there is some way to
set it in increments of less than 1 second (that is, short of modifying
the code and recompiling).
BTW, in some early googling for AutoHideDelay, I found that IceWM's
AutoHideDelay is settable in increments of ms.--and, iiuc, the default
is 300 ms., so others apparently see the need for something less than 1
and greater than 0 seconds.
