What does running 'mixer' tell you from cmdline?
Typically you'll see a 'master' and a 'pcm'.  In xmms you're probably 
adjusting pcm, whereas the others are adjusting 'master'.  You can adjust 
which volume adjustment amarok et al use, and also which volume level kde 
vol. indicator uses, from what I recall.
