Does somebody knows how can I lock the ADW launcher dock icons so with that I can't move or delete any of those?

Why I want that: Because sometimes I click on an icon on the dock and ADW moves it out of the dock. The same behaviour like I was holding that icon, but without holding it. It's very annoying.

I don't think this precise behavior exists in ADW at the moment. However, you can lock your desktop entirely if you want to, which prevents you from moving any of the icons or adding new icons (or widgets). You'll have to unlock it whenever you want add widgets/icons but it's only three clicks (Menu button->More->(un)Lock Desktop).
