Bug#497032: asterisk: incorrect cancel of colour code on console

Package: asterisk
Version: 1:
Severity: normal

I normally run asterisk in verbose 3 mode and monitor the console. I 
have noticed that one of the "cancel colour" codes is incorrectly 
formed, leading to bright magenta being used where it should be plain 

This occurs when this line is executed in my extensions.conf:

exten => s,n+1(withclid),Set(DB(lastcall/${CHAN})=${CALLERID(num)})

The magenta colour used for the output is not cancelled, the code 
showing (greater-or-equal-sign)[0;37;40   m, not cancelling the colour 
and causing all further output to be the same colour until an explicit 
colour change. It looks like the code is missing a control character.

(note: the -pmr-2 patched version of asterisk is the +b1 with a patched 
chan_zap.c to get round another bug)
