I now put Size-Hints and Size-Policies "everywhere" in the applet code. Alas - it did not help.
Then I implemented widhtForHeight() and heightForWidth() as a KPanelApplet should do. Alas - it also did not help
I worked 2 days, putting debugging info kdelibs and kicker and found out my widhtForHeight() would not get called at all appropiate times.

2 hours later I saw my stupid mistake - I declared:
int KMixApplet widhtForHeight();
instead of
int KMixApplet widhtForHeight() const;

Now it works (hopefully really). I'll scan the rest of KMix for missing const's and then commit the stuff.

Oh my, this was by far the worst part of the refactoring.
