Are you sure you are using the right ecasound version? Feedback param was
added to -etd in 2.1dev0.
ecasound.1 in 2.0 and older:
ecasound.1 in 2.1dev0 and newer:

What's the exact parameters you used? At least something like
-etd:10000,0,1,50,50 works fine on my test system (memory consumption
increases by 3MB which is reasonable for cd-audio 44100*4bytes/sec*10 ~=
1.8MB). I did the test with ecasound 2.1dev8 (current CVS).
