Yes, a well known problem, but it's really a KDE bug, as I like to think. KDE 
allows application a few seconds to shut down, and afterward just kills 
(signal 9) the process, instead of asking the user, like Windows does.

Only two solutions at this point:

1) Keep a shorter playlist (this also helps Amarok performance)
2) Shut down Amarok before shutting down KDE
