I noticed that I had neglected to shut off Ktorrent after the last time 
I used it - all I did was hit the window closer in the corner, and that 
leaves it active with an icon in the system tray. Since actually 
shutting it down, the volume control and welcome tune operate normally.

Dunno if that qualifies as a system bug, or merely incompetence on my part.
