[asterisk-users] How to stop ringing when incoming PSTN call is answered externally?

This is a hard one to explain.  My home PSTN line is connected via an 
Openvox A400P card to my Asterisk box which then routes 
incoming calls to my 2 SCCP extensions.

The calls are routed just fine, but when a call is answered at one of 
the extensions or externally (by a home telephone) the asterisk 
extensions continue to ring one more time.  Is there a way to have 
Asterisk drop an incoming PSTN call as soon as it's answered?

CLI output when receiving a PSTN call:
  Starting simple switch on 'DAHDI/3-1'
     -- Executing [s at from-pstn-3:1] Wait("DAHDI/3-1", "1") in new stack
     -- Executing [s at from-pstn-3:2] Verbose("DAHDI/3-1", "CALLERID is 
XXXXXXXXXX") in new stack
     -- Executing [s at from-pstn-3:3] Verbose("DAHDI/3-1", "Time is
