I was not precise enough. Here is what happened:

 - I had to install task-pulseaudio with all dependencies AND
 - backend was only phonon-gstreamer
 - in speaker settings of "phonon" I  changed sound device from
"Internal Audio" to "High Definition Audio Controller"
It worked.

After updates this setup did not work anymore. So I
 - installed phonon-xine and put it on top in the backend tab
 - changed sound device back to "Internal Audio", the output setting
to "Internal Audio Analog Stereo"

Works in stereo with internal speakers and headphone.

This is the current working setup with all updates installed (no
/testing repos set).
This is also the setup I created the "pacmd list" output.

Sorry about the unclear report.
