Thanks for the valuable input!
This pointed out another bug: the default recording method was not
properly selected (should not be ALSA) - which made me think you used
Kwave before. I also was confused by the window title of the message
box, I expected something like "Unable to open the recording device (...)".

Additionally the error strings from glibc and other libs were not
handled properly. I now expect that these are already translated and in
"local 8 bit" encoding (at least on my system here it works like that).

Should be better now:
