Looks like changes ~4/5 days ago may have broke it.

I believe this should do the trick:

This appears to be the breakpoint for this...  Can someone confirm that this proposed patch indeed fixes the problem?  Also, srathje, can you please submit this patch as an actual attachment to the bug?

I think its due to work in struct channel (See ASTERISK-3494 for more infos).
Since is had effects on chan_sip and chan_zap, but nothing in chan_h323, i suspect that change.

No problem. I'm reluctant to commit w/o disclaimer, but since it's a little fix I'll go ahead and do it.. Just make sure you follow up when your disclaimer is on file.

Fixed in CVS, thanks!
