The only one I can confirm is 4.2; I can, in fact, never launch the contact list by any means other than the launcher.  I use Docky and used to have the contact list pinned to the dock but can no longer launch the pinned item.  This was the case before today's update (been this way for a while) but I dismissed it as minor as Docky isn't KDE stock software.

With respect to 4.3 it's possible that the user is reporting that there are two "Instant Messaging Settings" in the menu for the panel icon, one leads to a global shortcut binding and the other to the accounts display.  It would be ideal if the configuration for the IM had remained in System Settings where it was stored in 4.x, but se la vie.
