Bug#495515: asterisk: Zap BT UK Caller ID only works intermittently

Package: asterisk
Version: 1:
Severity: normal

When using a BT UK FXO line, when the line rings, the caller ID is 
sometimes lost due to a false ring 380ms later disturbing it, rendering 
the call as though the number was withheld.

It looks as though there has been some attempt to patch for a similar 
problem - not sure whether this is a Debian patch or upstream - but it 
certainly does not solve the problem.

There exists a patch for chan_zap.c that, when applied, does fix this, 
and even sends a notice to the console when the patch was actually 
needed. It can be found here:


(please note that the -pmr-1 tagged versions of the packages are mine, 
post patching)
