Well, yes, but that's the only way I know of to suppress the AppIcon.
I just want the windows of my applications to appear on the screen and
in the taskbar.

It works quite well. If set to YES, when I minimize a window, this
window disappears from the taskbar and becomes a miniwindow. If set to
NO, the window remains in the taskbar and there's no miniwindow.

In my case, if the 'Hide' menu item just minimized the application
windows, GNUstep applications would behave like other applications.

I'll add my commments to the bug Fred pointed to.
