Hmm...the other person uses a cisco ip phone (so recording probably will not 
work). Furthermore the problem is present at his end of the connection, 
because he hears an echo of his voice. As far as I understand echo 
cancellation, it has to be the fault of the software at my end, hasn't it? 
Therefore replacing his ip phone with ekiga (or something else where 
recording is possible) will probably be the route to go.

As soon as the call is established the other party (on the cisco phone) hears 
a strong echo of his voice with about 250-500 ms delay. On my end there is 
almost no echo at all.

Laptop mic/speakers should always be on the same device, shouldn't they? I 
just checked the ekiga preferences and under 'Audio devices' the same device 
is selected for both output and input.
