"Fixed" this one. I learned that the volume control was missing every 
time I booted with Ktorrent also active. Brain eventually thawed, and I 
right-clicked on the system tray and selected System Tray Settings. Once 
there I changed Kmix from "Auto" to "Always Visible" and because I 
rarely use it, changed Klipper to "Hidden."

After rebooting with Ktorrent active, the volume control was visible in 
the system tray, as desired.
