Well, some indication of what version of kde you're running, along with 
distro, could be useful...

Meanwhile, for some time kmix has been acting up here.  I can't restore 
it /or/ get the master-volume popup from the tray icon, and when I try to 
restore, nothing appears and alt-tab, etc, go haywire.  I have to click 
in an app to activate it (even if it still shows as active, and the 
normal focus-follows-mouse... doesn't), before I can alt-tab or get the 
plasma panel to popup or focus-follows-mouse working again.

But (1) I can still use the kmix tray icon for mute/unmute (which is 
generally all I use it for anyway, since I have the sound patched to my 
home 5.1 system where I control volume, etc), and...

(2) If I open a konsole and killall kmix, then run kmix twice, (the first 
one going in the tray again after the killall), *THEN* I can get the kmix 
window to show.

This is on kde 4 git-master updated as of a few days ago, reporting as 
4.13.60, using the gentoo/kde overlay and 4-master ebuilds (4.9999).
