hmm, to be honest, that sounds _very_ weird. Ecasound does not impose any
filename length limitations (operating system / libc limits apply). How
about other file types than ogg...? It might be a bug in oggenc/ogg123 or
bug in the way ecasound uses them... OTOH, on my machine I cannot trigger
this bug with ecasound-2.3.5 plus vorbis-tools-1.0.3. :o

PS You could try running ecasound with "-dd".. it'll print more
   information about how oggenc/ogg123 is launched.
