In those where there is no middle mouse button like most ex-MS users have. 
They don't know how to click both buttons at the same time to just change the 
volume. This is what you use kmix for in 99% of all cases, mute, unmute, 
change volume. The main window itself is only interesting if you want to 
change certain settings like recording volume.

If you'll leave the current behavior in, you can bet all packagers will patch 
this to the behavior in 3.1 because everything else is nonsense for all users 
who are not componists or working in a recording studio :)
