sorry, by saying echo tail I was thinking about the delay between signal  
 from microphone and loudspeakers. in your example client that was 3

no, I am doing it in real voip applications using portaudio. one  
application is just a test program that sends voice over lan and does  
nothing else, concentrating only on echo cancellation and voice sending,  
it works quite well, almost no noises, and the filter does not stops  
working. but another program is a real voip+IM application working in  
and there are problems here with noises and that the filter stops working.
