Have you connected the chainsetup (with 'cs-connect') before issuing
'get-length'. Ecasound doesn't actually open files or devices before
chainsetup is connected (to avoid unnecessarily grabbing resources).
Because of this it can't know file properties before connecting.

This is a debugging/development feature to catch unexpected control
flows and program states. If you mail me the whole line and description of
what you were doing, I should be able to fix the problem (or verify that
there is no problem in that particular case).

.snd files somewhere on the web, I can take a look at them.
