Could you please try and give me some debug
info. Do: M-x toggle-debug-on-error RET
then wait till the error happens.
If you get a backtrace, mail that to me please.

This is because daemon-status-fetching is on by default
right now, and there is no user-option to disable it. So what
is taking so much time is having to do aroun 10 ECI calls
each second. Next versions will have a option
to disable this, and will also be a bit more optimized
so that it doesn't send that much eci commands.

You can do M-x ecasound-kill-daemon RET in the *ecasound* buffer,
which should stop the background processing for now.
Also, if the ecasound window is not visible (i.e., if you
hide it by doing C-x 1 in another buffer), the
background fetching stops automatically.
