I  suspect  that  sound is managed at a separate level (module)  than  the
desktop  environment  (KDE). I had some problems similar to yours  in  the
past and changing a few settings under YaST resolved the issue.

As   sound   issues  tend  to  be  very  distro-specific,  at   least   in
nature/pattern,  you  may often find more people who know the answer in  a
newsgroup  that  is saturated with people using that same distro. I  speak
from  experience here... what you think is very odd might be a trivial fix
among the minds of the users over there.

Best Regards,
