You shouldn't Answer() the originating channel before calling Dial() on it.
You should allow Dial() to propagate the answer, busy or other failure from
the destination channel back to the originating channel.

Is it possible that the setup part of the call (between initiation and answer)
is recorded in a separate CDR?
