Per the Asterisk maintenance timeline page at http://www.asterisk.org/asterisk-versions maintenance (bug) support for the 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 branches has ended. For continued maintenance support please move to the 1.6.2 branch.

More information on this change can be found in the release announcement: http://www.asterisk.org/node/49924

Also, are you perhaps loading users.conf via static realtime?  This looks like a load order problem.

While it's true in 1.6.0 that the [general] context needs to come first for the VOICEMAIL_EXTEN to work correctly, it is no longer this way in 1.6.2.  That is the best workaround I can offer you for users.conf for 1.6.0, but in order to receive support, you'll need to upgrade to 1.6.2.
