Description:Normally channels comply with the "TECH/name-SESSION" naming convention, where:
TECH -- is technology, e.g. ZAP, SIP, DAHDI, GTALK, etc.
name -- name of the specific trunk instance
SESSION -- unique session ID

Gtalk works differently which may be related with its relationship to Jabber (just a guess).

It would be nice if GTalk complied with the same naming convention as other channels do. The existing deviation breaks some applications like FOP which rely on the "known" channel name structure.


Here is the example from the console log to illustrate.

   -- Called GV8612/+1NXXNXXXXXX@voice.google.com
   -- Gtalk/+1NXXNXXXXXX@voice.google.com-3648 is ringing
   -- Gtalk/+1NXXNXXXXXX@voice.google.com-3648 answered DAHDI/7-1

The first line refers to the trunk specific string, "GV8612"
Then the trunk name presented in the second and third lines is constructed as "TECH/<called URI>-SESSION

There is one more deviation from standard.

GTalk leaves CID number blank. It populates the CID name though.
