Ah, that's the hint I needed. $KDEDIR/share/mimelnk/audio does not have an mp3 
entry only x-mp3. The double entries are in my .kde directory: there are e.g 
x-mp3.desktop *and* x-mp3.kdelnk.
Should I delete the entries with .kdelnk?
I also suppose that the overrides that cause the strange behaviour are in the 
~/.kde directory...
