Thank you to all that answered the poll. At the table, I choose to double which looked like the more flexible action. Pass looked to shy given that preemptor's partner was a passed hand.
Partner decided to leave the double with his two minor suit kings and 2-2-4-5, hardly unreasonable, but the normal heart lead would give away the contract since hearts were 5-1 and declarer could discard from his doubleton.
So full marks to Kieran who anticipated this possibility.
Not to say that 4NT should be the bid (partner could have 3-2-4-4 or even 3-3-4-3 with a spade honor), but it was a point I should have considered.

Thank you for the hints, I also already got the solution through some private message. Have to admit spent most of the flight back from Barcelona to Madrid thinking on the problem without success :).
Still people may enjoy working through it!

Nice to confirm that Sherlock Holmes was right.
