Short description of error
Hello. I Can`t turn off lights height lines in Viewport then lights is linked to another scene inside group...

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

Scene1 contains some light (engine lights for ex). I group all rocket and link it to scene 2. In scene 2 I have another lights.
In preferences I can turn off light heigh line by change alpha of light in Themes -> 3d -> lamps. But linked lights lines stay visible....

I'm afraid once the group is instanced, everything in the group is drawn with TH_SELECT (User Preferences > Themes > 3D View > Object Selected).
This is overriden for all duplis [see draw_dupli_objects()], so it's not just the lamps color.
So in your case you "loose" the possibility to set alpha=0 for the lamp...
Of course it would be possible to do some extra checks in draw_dupli_objects_color(), not sure if this is desired though... let others decide... :)

Hmmh... My scene looks like this... And I want to add more lights to another engines... May be it is possible to turn off this line in object properties? I dont know where this line can help me.... May be in future Blender developers add ability to turn it off ? Thanks...

This isn't a bug, (its a request for an option).
