Robert asked on the ecl list about this, and it turns out it was a bug
in ecl wherein ecl would actually stat everything. I think it's fixed
now. This would also explain why I wasn't seeing this since I'm using a
relatively old version of ecl.
So the solution is to get a newer (or older) version of ecl.
