Nothing has been changed in a long while. Ecasound initialized the
length to zero when wav-file is create, and only updates the field
when closing the file (only then we know the length of the created
file). Now in some cases (ecasound crashes, etc), the wave-header might
not get updated. If this happens "ecasound -i broken.wav -o fixed.wav"
should do the trick. I tried latest ecasound&sox combination and worked
fine for me.
