I think that's exactly what happens.

I could change the code, but I don't know how. I really don't want to
hardcode known plugin filename extension types to ecasound. Ecasound can
be run on any POSIXish systems (not just Linux, OS X and Win32), so making
this type of assumptions can cause nasty side-effects for some users.
