Unless you were running as root, I doubt this was caused by ecasound.
User-apps cannot really freeze a machine like this. The real problem is
most probably in the kernel or some driver. Of course, running a specific
app with specific parameters can trigger a bug in kernel space, but the
bug still is in kernel space (-> and needs to be fixed there). But, but,
if you were running as root, try reproducing the behaviour with '-r:-1'
(no RT scheduling even if run as root).

Hmm, I recommend reporting these to the plugin authors. Ecasound doesn't
really have any role in how LASDPA plugins handle different parameters. So
the bug would need to be fixed in the plugin code.
