Have you compiled ecasound with --enable-largefile './configure' option?

Your problem description sounds like some component is hitting the 2GB
size limit (current file position, or some other variable is stored in a
32bit signed variable (has room for 2^31 values, i.e. if used for counting
bytes, will wrap around at ~2GB).

Ecasound is "large-file safe" when compiled with --enable-largefile. The
problem could also be in the flac tools...
