The bug is pretty easy to replicate, but there are things one should keep in mind if it doesn't work out at first.
It tends to work best when the object is ever so slightly tilted. A freshly spawned barrel is less likely to be a good model for this bug than one that's been jiggled around a bit.
Consider the subtle difference between these two barrels:

The one on the left, slightly ajar, can be kicked with the player's back to it. The one on the right, however, is fresh and doesn't want to put up with it.

Also, positioning helps if you walk up the object, block, and turn yourself around during the block so that you don't accidentally move away. But maybe I'm stating the obvious.

Fixed after Alpha v.1.3.4.
We have been looked over the kicking to prevent it clipping through small walls in recent updates and this bug was an unintentional side effect.
I will try to release a bugfix in a few hours.
