Ok, now I know why this issue has been so messy. mpg123 seems to always
output 16bit-stereo to standard output, even if the mp3 is mono. So if
ecasound recognized that the input is a mono file, it'll interpret the
audio stream wrong, and if just handles all mpg123 input as stereo, mono
streams will come out as stereo streams with right channel muted.

Probably caused by the same mess. Ecasound has to calculate the sample
rate from the bitrate. Now if there are any confusion about the
mono/stereo issue, also sample rate will be wrong. :(
