One thing missing from your post, the version of kde/plasma you're using.

Never-the-less, I just duplicated your results here, post kde-4.11.1
4.11-branch live-git build, tho I've not updated in a week or two.

Meanwhile, while I do have kickoff on a panel, I don't tend to actually 
use it that much as I have my own hotkey-triggered launcher menu script 
configured for apps I use frequently enough to bother.  And for stuff not 
on my hotkey-launcher, if I know the name I'll often simply type it into 
krunner.  So pretty much the only time I actually use kickoff is when I'm 
browsing the menu for stuff I so seldom use I neither have it on my hotkey 
launcher nor remember the name in ordered to type it into krunner, which 
is very likely under 1% of my launches, perhaps a couple times a month, 
if that.  At that usage level, I don't care much what the settings are as 
long as it's somewhat usable, which it is. =:^)
