@alcatraz: It is a GXP BB, got the star-like dust cover on the nds. I am pretty confident by now that everything was set up right...

@Hambini: Right, I think in some cases the bearing itself has play (this is what happens to me as the tolerances are quite tight on the axle in my case (tight enough for play there to not be felt).

I now mounted an FSA spring-wave-washer on the ds, this has solved the play issue, they spin very freely (just as before) except without any noticable play. I think in this setup it is a very good system as it is not possible to exessively preload the bearings this way.
