Try this (untested) in one of your startup files:

    (defadvice icomplete-vertical-mode
        (before activate-icomplete-before-icomplete-vertical activate)
      "activate icomplete-mode before activating icomplete-vertical-mode"
      (icomplete-mode 1))

According to, Emacs is "[a]n
extensible, customizable, self-documenting display editor"; if you don't
like some given behavior, then you can very likely modify that behavior.

Arguably, it did take quite some effort to discover that you need both
function calls.  Perhaps you could submit a patch to that bug report to
update icomplete-vertical-mode's documentation instead of changing
emacs's behavior for everyone.
