When you right-click on an app listed in Kicker or Kickoff and choose "Pin to Task Manager", Kicker or Kickoff will close. This is annoying if you're trying to pin multiple apps in a row, and seems unnecessary, since closing the menu manually is a trivially simple matter.
Works for me.
Are you sure?
