[asterisk-users] HELP! AGI AUTOHANGUP does not seem to hangup the channel.

I have also tried configuring pjsip wizard like this.


And I see this shortly after the "hangup" command has been sent, so
that part is working:

[May 26 17:36:37] NOTICE[1276]: res_pjsip_sdp_rtp.c:150
rtp_check_timeout: Disconnecting channel
'PJSIP/fromvoipfone-206-0000000b' for lack of audio RTP activity in 5

But, again, it doesn't disconnect. The line stays open. And yes, my
fallthrough after agi is

same => n, Hangup()

Also, apparently I now have a load of channels, which won't even hangup with

channel request hangup all

Requested Hangup on channel 'PJSIP/fromvoipfone-206-0000000b'
Requested Hangup on channel 'PJSIP/fromvoipfone-206-0000000a'
Requested Hangup on channel 'PJSIP/fromvoipfone-206-00000009'

...and wait.. and then...

Channel              Location             State   Application(Data)
PJSIP/fromvoipfone-2 s at test:2             Up      AGI(agi://localhost:3456)
PJSIP/fromvoipfone-2 s at test:2             Up      AGI(agi://localhost:3456)
PJSIP/fromvoipfone-2 s at test:2             Up      AGI(agi://localhost:3456)
3 active channels
3 active calls

So they just won't die.

Asterisk 18.4.0 - worth filing a bug?
