The original files were DV-type2 and had an extension of .dv. I took what you had suggested me and adapted it for my files.

No, they were (AFAIK) DV-type2 files, I thought. That is how I meant to capture them, but yes the extension is a bit suspect. I captured/created them in Kino. Here is a file listing for one (I tried a few more and they all gave the same output)
$ file clip.dv
clip.dv: DIF (DV) movie file (NTSC)
If the original file worked and was reencoded, why would its output file not work? Should I try to reencode them differently? Am I not working with DV-type2 (AVI) here at all but with raw DV? And does it matter?
Should i recapture the footage as a different file or in KDEnlive rather than in Kino?

Why convert .dv to .dv? You said you had problematic AVI, and my suggestion
was only for the problematic AVIs.

Are you certain that the original .dv files were really Raw DV? What created
