Let me try to answer better. This is just a guess, mind you.
In your KDE control panel:sound, you are informed that KDE monopolizes
your sound system to make its noises, and you can set the release time.
I think that, when you punch up kmix, there is a desktop noise, and
kmix has to wait 15 seconds to load. It times out. If you set the
release time to one second, it will succeed after the one second. It
did for me, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it unless someone
has a better one. :-) daveA
