Two things I noticed:
* The first channel from my soundcard is the HDMI-Output which I don't use. 
But I have not found any way to tell the applet to use the second channel as 
master. So the applets icon just shows 100% volume all the time while the 
interessting value is only visible after clicking it.
* Global shortcuts for volume keys are assigned to kmix and I have not found 
an entry for the Audio Volume applet. So volume keys are not working for me 
when kmix is not running.
