Description:The file name used in the A(file) option of the dial
command is not XXX-d out like the P() args are. Therefore
they affect the option scans. The unlucky user who
specifies A(Troublemsg_tdc) or somesuch, may not realize
they have just specified the t,T,r,m,d,c, and g options to
Dial. I've included some diffs that fix this problem.


Also, using the P (privacy) or C options excludes the A() option. I do not see any reason for this. As a matter of fact, I see that using the A() to let the called person know they are connected to the calling party can be mighty handy! The attached diff -u patch also address this problem. As a matter of fact, the Announce args MUST be X'd out, or they will affect the options. You can't hide them by using another option!
