That comment is in the process of being revised, because it was based on a
fundamental misunderstanding of how the code works. There is indeed a bug
in chan_iax2 where a scheduled process either does not reset its ID upon death
or it's hanging out for WAY too long.
Setting the routine back to the function instead of the macro doesn't "fix"
anything; it merely hides the problem.
