Description:Hi guys

This problem still exits in the latest version as I just upgraded and broke my asterisk until I reapplied this patch.

Should this patch now be made into the next release as a bug fix? it is not a "nice to have" or anything but a working documented part of the product that should be fixed for everybody.

The patch works great anyways so its low priority for me but it is there as a problem that should be in the next release as a fix rather than a patch from an old version that doesn't seem to be fixed.

Thanks guys for your time. You're all awesome.

I was migrating my php AGI script from asterisk to 1.8.5 and everything seemed to be working except when using the dial(,,L(x:y)) app to play a message once the call is ANSWERED. It appears that asterisk is not honoring the channel variable "LIMIT_CONNECT_FILE" as it did in version I also check the other variable "LIMIT_WARNING_FILE" and this on does get played back when 'y' time is remaining.

-- AGI Script Executing Application: (Dial) Options: (SIP/provider1/xxxxxxxxxxx,45,rL(60000:30000))

This patch has already been applied to asterisk 1.8. I am not sure which release it is in or will be in. If it is not fixed in the version you are using, continue to use this patch until a version with the fix is released.

I still having the same problem, even with patch. Which version of Asterisk this option works well?

It looks like it should be in the 1.8.8 release.

Just to update this, the bug is still present in Asterisk - I am testing to see if the patch will fix it.
