[ecasound] flac error END_OF_STREAM

I started to use ecasound with jack for home recording. I'd like to use
flac, but ecasound seems to have problems with it. The resulting file
can be used by playback applications, but the determination of the
length fails (header?).

>ecasound -c -r -b:512 -f:s16_le,2,44100 -a:1,2 -i:jack_alsa,in -a:1
-o:jack_alsa,out -ea:200 -erc:1,2 -a:2 -o:test.flac -erc:1,2

(I also tried -f:24,2,48000 if that matters)

I can quit without crashing (using the non-interactive mode without -c
crashes quite regularly btw), but the resulting .flac seems to be incorrect:

>flac -a test.flac

test.flac: ERROR while decoding data
              state = FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_END_OF_STREAM

It also doesn't help to do a

>ecasound -i test.flac -o test_new.flac

Recording in .wav and converting using

>ecasound -i test.wav -o test_new.flac

also leads to an END_OF_STREAM error.

Any suggestions? Do I need to use .wav and convert it later using
another tool?

Thanks Florian
