Unfortunately, this is a bug in those versions of Rockbox. This was fixed
a few days ago, but due to the lang file change, you will need a new
voice file, as you have discovered.
I've just tried generating a German voice file using Eloquence. It is
set to fast speed (430 wpm). I don't understand German, so have no idea
if it is useful. You can grab it here temporarily:
Hopefully, ETI don't demand we pull the Eloquence voice files down!

Menu->Recording->Recording Settings->Source. It can be switched between
microphone and line in. You will also need to set the gain higher than
the default to use most external microphones. This can be done on the
recording screen. On the recording screen, left and right increase and
decrease the current setting, and you move between settings with up and
down. In order, the settings are: volume, gain, left gain and right
gain. So, for example, to increase the gain, press down once and then
press right until you are satisfied.
