Volumes are not saved on exit. I can't say why, probably it works under some 
setups and on other not. You must test all cases, for example

- MainWindow hidden / MainWindow shown / MainWindow minmized (iconified)
- User allows KMix to use Systray / User does not allow to use Systray
- Quit via CTRL-Q / Quit via Close-Button / Quit via Logout

So this are 18 (3*2*3) possible setups. I am pretty sure you have not even 
tested one half of it (Hint: I do so with a test plan and currently it looks 
very bad).
Please see the "Problem with applications which have a system tray applet and 
secondary windows" thread to get one idea why saving might be so complicated.

And it is very bad that you cannot anymore restore the saved volume manually, 
for example after you have played with the Volumes and want to return to safe 
values. The option to restore volumes must never vanish.
