After spending hours of testing with no luck the config parameters
mentioned in the snd_hda(4) manpage, I've just set in userland after KDE
comes up:

$ mixer vol 66:66 pcm 40:40 speaker 66:66 line 66:66 mic 66:66 rec 66:66 +rec vol

the crucial part is '+rec vol' changing the recording device to 'vol'
and recording is now fine with this, even if I never ever will understand
what 'volume' has todo with input/microphone :-)
