I'm working with CDRfix5 project 
(http://svn.digium.com/svn/asterisk/team/group/CDRfix5) and I  notice 
the following thing:
When A calls B cdr.start, cdr.answer and cdr.end time are reported 
correctly, whilst  when A calls an external number B through FXO line 
the cdr.answer time is not when the remote peer actually answer the call 
but is the time when the FXO line start a call to the remote peer.
In this case I don't know how to compute the exact time (and so the 
cost) of the external call that is what usually a PBX manager want to know.


A ("FiveSevenFive" <576>) calls (02 0495952764) through a Zap/1 channel 
dial at 2007-08-29 10:46:48, connect at 2007-08-29 10:47:10 end at 
2007-08-29 10:47:25.

02 is the number in extension.conf used to access the external peer 
whilst 0495952764 is the number of the remote peer.


exten=> _21,1,Dial("SIP/1/${EXTEN})

The CDR will be:

clid="FiveSevenFive" <576>
start=2007-08-29 10:46:48
answer=2007-08-29 10:46:50 <--- is not what I want
end=2007-08-29 10:47:25

It seems to me that
