Thanks for the configs Kristian!  I'm learning a lot from them.

Kevin, thanks for the debug tips and the heads up on the alert-info  
variable (or rather _ALERT_INFO) in CVS HEAD.  I also recompiled with  
Alert-info changed to Alert-Info.  That may have helped, too.

In the end, the holdup was my bad configs on the phone.  I had been  
messing around with them trying to make the phone ring on simultaneous  
calls with SetGroup/CheckGroup.  I thought I had changed everything  
back, but I guess I hadn't.   I restored the default configs, and the  
auto-answer worked just fine.  D'uh.


BTW:  Has anybody figured out how to make the phones ring when a second  
or third simultaneous call comes in when using SetGroup/CheckGroup?
