I had a look at the source code of "chan_sip.c", and what we are talking about 
is a NULL pointer exception. It is not going to do much harm from what I can 

By the way, conserning security in "chan_sip.c", I see several "strcpy()" 
function calls. Isn't it time to change these into the BSD 
derived "strlcpy()"?
