Currently, no. If you want to make a screenshot with menu, you have to specify 
time delay in KSnapshot.

Not only in Windows, but also in Gnome.

Very notorious one. Makes most icon themes unusable for me. Also
depends on Qt style (in CDE style for example this problem appears with the 
themes with which no problems in other styles).

Maybe this is because some icon files have incorrect dimentions or format 
specified. If to remove some icon files fron an icon theme it is possible to
get rid of this bug. Another workaround is to use alternate K menu applet.
