Oops, sorry, my mistake. But does it disconnect its ports when it stops
outputting samples, or just outputs silence? Something strange happens
anyway that causes jackd to produce xruns. When the "client zombified" is
printed, the damage has already been done -- this just informs that
something has gone badly wrong and the client must be
restarted/reconnected to jackd. It's still possible that the fault is in
ecasound, I'm not saying that, but the "zombified" warning suggests the
problem is elsewhere.
Could you try the debug items 1 and 2 above? I'm a few hundred kms away
from nearest JACK-enabled machine, so I cannot do any debugging on this
