Hmm, I've tried out various things to reproduce this. I've tried both with
ecasound 2.4.4 and the most recent devel version (from the public git
tree), but I've couldn't reproduce the "stuttering and shuffling".

Has anyone else had similar experiences (or in general weird mixed
output after one of the inputs has reached end-of-file)?
