with the "all" argument, CALLERID will set the num, name, and ani fields in the channel's cid structure...

which should be enough to have it set the clid and src fields in the
cdr on the channel...

I've noticed that ast_cdr_setcid was broken, and have it fixed in my CDRfix5 branch, but this gave me an excuse to go ahead and commit this one small typo fix... in 1.4 and trunk.

See if your code behaves better in the current 1.4 svn release >= 67073
