For instance, I cannot seem to customize the "terminal" icon for 
kconsole: when clicking it, in only focuses on an existing kconsole 
instance and not run a new one (for the file manager instead it seems to 
work after setting it to run dolphin instead of nautilus)...  are you 
using the one in the repo, or compiling it from sources?
