Don't you hate it when you post a question then find the solution a few 
minutes later totally by accident?

To turn off the balloony-thingys on kicker:
1. Right-click on kicker and select "Panel Menu -> Configure Panel..."
2. Select the "Appearance" tab
3. Deselect the "Enable icon mouseover effects"
4. Apply+OK.  Done.

No more balloony-thingys :)

You know it's Monday when you wake up and it's Tuesday.
