I'm on Gentoo too (~amd64) with KDE 4.13.0. I also can't the kmix window 
to show. Right-click and selecting "restore" just pops up the usual 
non-windowed panel-thingy that you get when simply left-clicking on the 
tray icon.

Running KMix though (either from the K-menu or a terminal) brings up a 
normal KMix window though without me having to kill the current kmix 
process first.
