[ecasound] Help me troubleshoot my recording.

 I record Sirius Satellite Radio daily 24 hours / 7 days a week over
optical toslink cable. I've been doing this for over 2 years now.

 About 2 months ago my recordings started failing, in the range of 7
to 24 hours. At the end it sounds like the stream gets corrupted.
After the corruption anything I try to rip from this raw files is all
blank (or maybe it's quit recording completely). I have attached a
link[1] to a sample of when it goes bad (less than 1MB in FLAC). It
seems most obviously a ALSA problem, but I'm not sure. This problem
started on 6-8-2008, though nothing obvious appears in my logs as to
why this started happening then. No strange ecasound output appears
before this happens.

My execution line is:
ecasound -r -i alsa,hw:Audigy2 -z:db,1000000 -z:intbuf -o
It was this way since before this started happening.

This is reproducable with ecasound 2.4 and 2.5
