It was GStreamer. I changed it to Xine and it's a lot better. In fact
after changing it I got the PulseAudio option in the devices list (it
wasn't there before) and moved it to the top.
I checked with a test user and the menu is rather different (no
duplicates or empty entries). Presumably this is the default and mine is
screwed up because of many succesive generations of KDE. So the question
is: do I need to trash my whole .kde config or can I just remove the
appropriate part of it?
(Stilll getting the wierd Kmix icon BTW).
