I'm experiencing the following problem with KMix in openSUSE 12.3. When I first
started Skype on openSUSE 12.3 everything worked just fine. However, when I
tried changing the microphone input level in KMix during a test call, from that
point on my microphone stopped working. After I closed Skype and started it
again, the microphone input level was set to zero and increasing the input
level in KMix had no effect, I could still not hear myself during a test call.
Only after I installed pavucontrol I was able to see what was really going on.
Essentially, I soon as I would touch the input level slider for Skype Input in
KMix, the input level would immediately go to zero and any further attempts to
change it would simply keep it at zero. The only way to increase the input
level is to do it from pavucontrol.

I tested openSUSE 12.3 on two laptops (Dell Inspiron and HP Pavilion) as well
as inside VirtualBox 4.2.10 (using its default ICH AC97 audio controller) and
the problem is fully reproducible.
