Environment:Asterisk running on Centos 32 bitAttachments:( 0) fax.log
Description:I am working on a web application which will queue up outbound faxes and send them as soon as a fax license becomes available.  Unfortunately Asterisk does not seem to be reporting the fax sessions correctly.  If I send a fax and it times out 'fax show sessions' shows that there are 0 sessions active, but if I try to send another fax it gives this error:
Cannot reserve FAX session - session limit exceeded (max: 1).
Then a few seconds later I will see a message saying that the fax session is complete.  I will attach console output showing that 'fax show sessions' reports 0 sessions, but the fax session is still active.

Have you also experienced this under a current supported version of Asterisk?

No, we last saw this on Asterisk 1.8.
