I suspect that you have some unique index on the table which is
conflicting with the inserted fields.  Once you figure out which field is
causing the conflict, it should be easier to figure out where the problem
actually lies.

You remember incorrectly.  None of the CDR drivers currently have the
capability to alter tables.  What they will do is to adapt to the table
structure and insert only the required fields.  Only realtime table drivers
have the capability of altering tables and then, only if you turn that
behavior on.  By default, Asterisk does not alter table structures.
