Description:I am seeing the following behaviour with several providers.

When asterisk first starts, registrations proceed well (usually).  As time goes on, the sip channel starts "missing" the "OK" responses to outgoing "REGISTER" messages.  In the example I've uploaded, the sixth retry succeeds, however, I've seen even the sixth fail, resulting in over 270 retries (all with responses which should have been accepted), and messages of the form "sip_reg_timeout:    -- Registration for 'user@provider' timed out, trying again (Attempt ASTERISK-41)

I've uploaded a SIP DEBUG for your information; the first registration is OK; then it starts taking six "OK" responses before asterisk is happy.

Yes, it does.  I just upgraded this morning, and the problem persists.
