I've traced one glibc-reported memory error to the LADSPA plugin
(from LADSPA-SDK package). I'm not sure if it is related, but if it is,
then the error should only occur when you are using LADSPA plugins (as
ecasound will load all plugins to fill its internal registry). The problem
is triggered at cleanup time.
