Try using chan_woomera. It was designed to solve problems like this with 
chan_h323 as it doesn't link openh323 directly into asterisk. As chan_woomera 
was only released a couple of days ago it is missing a few of the features of 
chan_h323 (like the ability to use the Asterisk's codec compression) but 
these extra features will be added over the comming weeks. It should be much 
more stable and scalable than chan_h323.
