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.
