Ah, it was you who had this problem a while ago, wasn't it?
Anyway, the answer to the problem is in a post I sent a few weeks ago.
Your file is a proof of this: the first legible header is at the 2138th byte.
As ecasound only parses the first 1024 bytes of the file for a header it
finds none and therefore assumes wrongly that this file isn't a true mp3 file.

What version of ecasound are you using? It doesn't behave like mine.
