Question Slackware 14.0 RC1, KDE Changes my mic volume and people can't understand what I say

Hello, Guys, i have upgraded to 14 RC1 last night, and it is great so far!
Currently i'm having an issue with my mic in KDE. I'm in google chat, trying to talk to my family, but they can't understand what i say, they say i sound weird. When i try to change my mic volume higher, the slider comes back down on it's own in kmix and also in alsamixer. Is KDE somehow rying to adjust my volume? i hate it when an app does that. I tried switching to Xine backend (it was gstreamer before) but i'm having the same issue.

Meanwhile i'll try testing this in XFCE to see if it works there... There's another glitch i found in KDE, but i'll post that in it's own thread.

Thank you guys, and congratulations to all Slackware developers and supporters!
