Subject: [ecasound] 24-bit recording (with M Audio 1010LT/OSS)

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask this,
I'm trying to do 24-bit recording with my M-Audio
Delta 1010LT using the OSS driver, which certainly
claims to support 24/32-bit recording.
But, when I do some recording:
ecasound -i /dev/dsp8 -f s32_le,2,44100,i
and look at the bytes in my output file:
... 113, -4, 0, 0, 62, 1, 0, 0, 80, -3, 0, 0 ...
fully half of the bytes are 0x00, which suggests that
ecasound is just padding 16-bit samples with zero's to
make 32-bit samples.
What to do? Have any of you heard about people
successfully breaking the "16-bit barrier?" Was it
with ecasound? Which card and driver? Etc etc.
It's probably some simple little thing that I need to
configure, but for now I'm just stumped. Any helpuful
hints would be much appreciated, believe you me!
Well, until then, thanks in advance,
