As the 64bit kernel seemed to remain a possible source of error, I installed a
32bit Athlon K7 image. 

The result is: Everthing works fine!

So the 64 bit kernel with 32 bit userland is obviously a problem. Or is
it 64bit kernel in general?

Thanks for your support! I will later try with a self-compiled 32bit Athlon K8 kernel.

BTW: I scanned for channels with kaffeine, but it detects much less
channels then the original win32 software. So I tried it manually with
scan to see what exactly happens (all with the latest tuning file
de-Leipzig). This is a part of the output:

I remembered that Mike mentioned a high sensitivity of the device under
Linux. So I connected the antenna via a passive Y switch, but that did
not change anything. I would (again) appreciate your help.
