Description:If the "gatekeeper" is set to a ip address of a gatekeeper,
and anything goes wrong through the registration, asterisk dies.


This is not usable in this case. The gatekeeper can be down on any grounds.... and the asterisk can never be started if the chan_h323 module shall be loaded.

I disagree, look at the H.323 spec, if a gatekeeper is in the network it SHALL be used. Leme see what I can do about this.

May be just to unload h.323 module when gatekeeper is configured and cannot be contacted instead of crash *?

Instead of killing Asterisk at load, just warn about GK Registration failure.  However, I can see a few potential problems with this simple fix. Mainly when u attempt to dial no Gatekeeper will be around to place your all and I am not able to test to see if Open H.323 will attempt another registration at dial.
