Thanks a lot for that: I'll keep your advise in mind for later:
Currently I try to find out what snd-aoa can do *without* any of my
interventions (save the ones I mentioned earlier). Just using it,
updating Johannes' drivers every now and then, doing nothing more than
that, and seeing what happens: And the software seems to behave very well:

Currently I'm listening to 2 radio streams at the same time, with 2
instances of alsaplayer-gtk. And depending on which of the 2 streams
broadcast my favorite stuff I turn the volumes on and off. And it just
works ... :)

I'll have a closer look on the files you mentioned/created, just a bit
later. I might need them urgently for sound instances being more
complicated than just 2 radio broadcasts .. :)

Thanks a lot .. :)
