From a fundamental level, shouldn't the END_OF_Q frame be removed from any channel where _softhangup is explicitly set to zero? As such, I think the patch should not be just for SOFTHANGUP_ASYNC_GOTO, but for unsetting all _softhangup flags.

work on updating it to attempt to address the issues you both
