it's probably because the sum-mixmode was just added in 2.4.0, and it's
not the default, so most people are not using.

Actually this is a bug in ecasound, and fairly severe one. Basicly in some
cases ecasound will keep feeding the last block of an input to the mixer,
even after the input stream has reached its end. The bug happens also with
'-z:mixmode,avg', but the resulting artifacts are harder to detect than
with 'sum'.

I just committed a fix to CVS, and it will be in the 2.4.4 release. Thanks
for the detailed bug report!
